Sexually transmitted infections in Europe 1990–2009
This first surveillance report from ECDC on sexually transmitted infections (STI) covers the years 1990 to 2009. It aims to describe basic trends and epidemiological features of the five STI under EU surveillance: syphilis, congenital syphilis, gonorrhoea, chlamydia and lymphogranuloma venereum.
Behavioural surveillance toolkit
The overall objective of this work is to support the development of a key set of indicators in order to ensure availability of comparable behavioural data and to support Member States to implement behavioural surveillance or surveys by preparing a user-friendly toolkit and framework (protocol) for the implementation of behavioural surveillance and second generation surveillance related to HIV and STI in Europe.

Review of Chlamydia Control Activities in EU Countries
