Catalogue of courses on prevention and control of communicable diseases
The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) and the Association of Schools of Public Health in the European Region (ASPHER) have agreed to collaborate in the training of public health professionals in competencies for prevention and control of communicable diseases. The collaboration between ECDC and ASPHER facilitates the connections between academia and the public health institutes, translating the collaboration at EU level to national level in particular in the area of serious cross border threats to health. The collection of the training offer and competences by European Schools of Public Health is essential and therefore complements the ECDC training offer. The aim of the present catalogue is to map the strengths of the schools and academic departments of public health members of ASPHER regarding their resources and competencies in the area of communicable disease prevention and control, and their current offer of training activities in that area of knowledge.
Public health experts and epidemiologists can use the tool to detect signals for outbreaks, based on changes in disease incidence.
The EpiReport is a tool that allows the user to draft an epidemiological report similar to the ECDC Annual Epidemiological Report (AER) in Microsoft Word format for a given disease.
