Methods

  • In 2014, 23 countries reported giardiasis cases in the EU/EEA in 2014. None of these reported zero cases.
  • The EU case definitions of 2012/2008 were used by 19 of the 23 countries (Annex).
  • Two of the reporting countries had active surveillance of giardiasis (Annex).
  • Notification rates and age-standardised rates were not calculated for Belgium, Spain and Romania because the respective national surveillance systems are sentinel systems and do not cover the whole population.
  • Although Poland provided aggregated seasonality data for the 2014 cases, data were missing for 2010–2013. Poland could therefore not be included in the seasonal trend analysis.
