In 2014, 23 EU/EAA countries reported cryptosporidiosis cases. Three countries reported 0 cases (Croatia, Cyprus and Malta).

Of all reporting countries, 19 countries used the current EU case definition for reporting cryptosporidiosis cases to TESSy, as published in 2008 and 2012. One country used the 2002 EU case definition for cryptosporidiosis, which excludes molecular detection methods, and three countries used other unspecified case definitions.

Twenty countries have mandatory reporting of cryptosporidiosis cases at the national level, and three countries use active surveillance (Annex).
