Scientific advice

ECDC is a resource of scientific advice on infectious diseases for the EU. Depending on the level of evidence provided and the methodology used, this advice is typically conveyed through a Guidance (based upon a systematic review of scientific evidence and appraised by a scientific panel of experts), a Systematic review (report that identifies, appraises and synthesises the evidence) or an Expert opinion (scientific view based on an informal review of evidence).
These categories were introduced in March 2015, with a strict application of respective methodologies.
