Second meeting of the CCEE-Baltic States Communicable Disease Network : report on a WHO meeting, Portoroz, Slovenia 20-22 June 2002
CCEE-Baltics Communicable Disease Network. Meeting (2nd: 2002 : Portoroz, Slovenia); World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 2002 )
Abstract

One of WHO's main means of creating a global system for the surveillance of disease is the development of a network of networks: linking local, regional, national and international networks of laboratories and medical or surveillance centres. With support from the WHO Regional Office for Europe, the countries of central and eastern Europe (CCEE) and the Baltic states formed: 1) a communicable disease network (CEE-CDN) that proposed to establish an early warning and response system; and 2) a surveillance network to help eliminate measles. At its second meeting, the participants approved the establishment of the early warning system (after pilot testing), and recommended that all CDN countries actively participate in it and in the exchange of data on measles. They also agreed on their role in contributing to the revision of the WHO International Health Regulations, and adopted mechanisms to manage CDN and targets for its future development, including training components and evaluation standards

World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 2002 )
Abstract

Recent events have made it clear that the international community must address the intentional release of biological agents as a public health priority. A recent review of national preparedness plans in the Member States of the WHO European Region has pointed out the need for strengthening national and international capacities for early detection and response to such threats. The purpose of the meeting was (a) to review the capacity of public health surveillance systems to detect and respond to natural and deliberately caused epidemics; (b) to identify needs and agree on mechanisms for strengthening such capacity; and (c) to identify and agree on how national early warning systems can contribute to regional and global networking initiatives. Representatives of 28 Member States of the Region attended the meeting and agreed on 22 recommendations in the areas of early warning systems, international epidemiology networking, strengthening of national surveillance capacity, laboratory and information technology, and human resources development
