This handbook is designed to assist public health authorities in developing syndromic surveillance protocols that complement routine surveillance in migrant reception centres and refugee hosting sites. Such protocols can assist in the detection of events such as large outbreaks or single cases of outbreak-prone conditions that would require an assessment in order to trigger and guide an appropriate public health response. 
ECDC has also developed a tool to calculate the thresholds for number of cases, incidence and proportional morbidity according to this methodology for each particular setting and situation.
