The ECDC Communicable Disease Threats Report (CDTR) is a weekly bulletin for epidemiologists and health professionals about active public health threats. This issue covers the period 4 to 10 October 2015, and includes updates on Salmonella Stanley, West Nile virus, MERS and Ebola virus disease.
The new report looks into the role of smartphone applications directed at men who have sex with men and how this affects the HIV epidemic across the EU/EEA. The effective use of such apps can contribute to the promotion and the uptake of HIV testing and other services.
