The European Influenza Surveillance Network (EISN) is coordinated by ECDC. The network combines epidemiological and virological surveillance of influenza to provide decision makers and public health experts in EU/EEA Member States with the information required to better assess influenza activity in Europe and take appropriate action. Ultimately, EISN aims to contribute to reducing the burden of disease associated with influenza in Europe.
Virological surveillance activities are coordinated through the European Reference Laboratory Network for Human Influenza (ERLI-Net), a sub-network within EISN.
Weekly analysis of influenza surveillance is available at Flu News Europe, a joint output from ECDC and the WHO Regional Office for Europe. For global updates, see information from WHO.
