Surveillance guidelines for measles and congenital rubella infection in the European Region of WHO
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 2003 )
Abstract

Measles and rubella remain important causes of vaccine-preventable disease and death in the European Region of WHO. The Strategic Plan for Measles and Congenital Rubella Infection in the European Region of WHO identifies key strategies to meet the targets for interrupting indigenous measles transmission and preventing congenital rubella infection (<1 case of congenital rubella syndrome per 100 000 live births) by 2010; strengthening surveillance systems by vigorous case investigation and laboratory confirmation is one of these key strategies. Surveillance indicators identified in these surveillance guidelines will be critical for assessing whether Member States have achieved the disease targets. The Surveillance Guidelines for Measles and Congenital Rubella Infection are intended to provide technical advice on the design and implementation of surveillance programmes for these diseases

Strategic plan for measles and congenital rubella infection in the European Region of WHO
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 2003 )
Abstract

Measles and rubella remain important causes of vaccine-preventable disease and death in the European Region of WHO. Although an increasing number of Member States provide highly effective vaccines to prevent both of these diseases as part of their routine Expanded Programme on Immunization Programmes, challenges remain to improve coverage in the countries currently using the vaccines and to introduce rubella vaccine in the countries that have not yet implemented a programme. The Strategic Plan for Measles and Congenital Rubella Infection in the European Region of WHO indentifies key strategies to meet the targets for the European Region of interrupting indigenous measles transmission and preventing congenital rubella infection (<1 case of congenital rubella syndrome per 100 000 live births) by 2010. Progress towards meeting these targets will be reviewed in 2005 in accordance with the 2005 global assessment of measles control

CINDI Health Monitor : a study of feasibility of a health behaviour monitoring survey across CINDI countries : data book
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 2003 )
Abstract

To better monitor health-related behaviour at community level in countries which are implementing an integrated approach towards noncommunicable disease prevention and control, a CINDI Health Monitor survey was introduced in the CINDI (Countrywide Integrated Noncommunicable Diseases Intervention) Programme. In 2000-2002, 32 surveys were carried out in 26 countries of the CINDI network. In order to assess the process of the implementation of the surveys and to study feasibility of such surveys, a survey on the methodological aspects of the CINDI Health Monitor survey was conducted. A database on the results was established and a data book prepared, which will be used to study the experience of the implementation of the CINDI Health Monitor survey at country level and elaborate strategies for the development of a regular health behaviour monitoring system
