European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control
A Policy agency, also called ECDC
Its mission is to help strengthen Europe’s defences against infectious diseases, such as influenza, SARS and HIV/AIDS. It has a small core staff but an extended network of partners across the EU and the EEA/EFTA Member States. The ECDC works in partnership with national health protection bodies to strengthen and develop continent-wide disease surveillance and early warning systems. Through such collaboration the ECDC pools Europe’s health knowledge, in order to develop authoritative scientific opinions on risks posed by new and emerging infectious diseases.
