ECDC’s Annual Epidemiological Report is now available as a series of individual epidemiological disease reports. Publication of reports on 2014 data began in March 2016.
All 2014 surveillance data were submitted electronically to The European Surveillance System (TESSy), with the last data sets received at the end of 2015.
ECDC’s annual surveillance reports are mainly intended for public health professionals and policymakers involved in disease prevention and control programmes and provide a wealth of epidemiological data to support decision-making at the national level.
