Synergies in community and institutional public health emergency preparedness for tick-borne diseases in the Netherlands
The present report is concerned with the emerging infection of tick-borne encephalitis in the Netherlands — the two first endemic cases occurring in July 2016 — in the larger context of a widespread and increasing incidence of lyme borreliosis.
Factsheet on tick-borne encephalitis, for healthcare professionals
The factsheet provides concise key information on tick-borne encephalitis for medical purposes. It is appropriate for use in both endemic and non-endemic areas. (Adaptable templates available)
Leaflet on tick-borne encephalitis for the general public living in endemic areas
The leaflet provides information about ticks, the risk, the prevention of tick bites and how to react in the case of a tick bite, and sets out the symptoms for each of the potential tickborne diseases. (Adaptable templates available)
Information sheet on tick-borne encephalitis for the general public living in endemic areas
The information sheet is mainly intended for people living in endemic areas who have been bitten by (a) tick(s) so as to inform them primarily about the symptoms that they have to be aware of. (Adaptable templates available)
Epidemiological situation of tick-borne encephalitis in the European Union and European Free Trade Association countries
The report summarises existing information on the occurrence of TBE to obtain a better understanding of the current magnitude of TBE in the European Union (EU) and European Free Trade Association (EFTA) countries.
TBE Key risk areas: TBE average annual incidence rate per 100 000 inhabitants in the EU/EFTA at lower administrative level NUTS 2 (Italy) or NUTS 3
The key risk areas for TBE are located in central and eastern Europe and the Baltic and Nordic countries.
TBE Key risk groups: Number of TBE cases, regardless of the applied case definition, by age group and gender reported in 16 EU/EFTA countries, 2000–2010 (n= 22 378)
In Europe, TBE cases occurred more commonly among men than women and the number of reported cases increased with age.
