The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) is a European Union agency which aims to strengthen Europe's defences against infectious diseases.
The mission of ECDC is to identify, assess and communicate about the threats to human health posed by infectious diseases. In order to achieve this mission, ECDC works in partnership with the health protection bodies across Europe to strengthen and develop surveillance and early warning systems for infections.
By working with experts throughout Europe, ECDC pools Europe’s health knowledge, so as to develop scientific opinions and recommendations about the risks posed by current and emerging infectious diseases. ECDC also contributes to European Union information and communication on infectious diseases through its surveillance systems, its publications and its cooperation with health authorities across Europe.
