EU/EEA capacity for the surveillance of hepatitis B and C using molecular methods
In order to explore whether the current capacity for EU/EEA-wide molecular characterisation for surveillance of HBV and HCV is sufficient to be feasible and what gaps need to be addressed, a survey of EU/EEA Member States was conducted to assess their laboratory capacity and needs in relation to the molecular characterisation of hepatitis B and C.
Assessing the burden of key infectious diseases affecting migrant populations in the EU/EEA: Executive summary
Hepatitis B and C in the EU neighbourhood: prevalence, burden of disease and screening policies
This literature review answers a series of questions on the prevalence of chronic HBV and HCV infection in the general EU population, the number of individuals with chronic HBV or HCV infection, and current national practices for screening for chronic HBV and HCV infection, all with the overarching goal of promoting national and European policies on the secondary prevention of these two diseases.
Laboratory testing of non-partner sperm donors
The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control was asked by the European Commission to assess the risk involved in changing the testing requirements for HIV (human immunodeficiency virus), hepatitis B virus (HBV), and hepatitis C virus (HCV) with regard to the quality and safety of non-partner semen donations.
Systematic review on the prevention and control of blood-borne viruses in prison settings
The objective of this report was to systematically review data on prevention and control of BBVs in prison settings, with a focus on the countries of the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA).
Hepatitis B and C epidemiology in selected population groups in the EU/EEA
The findings presented in this report will be part of the process of developing a European guidance for HBV and HCV testing and may provide support EU/EEA countries in the development of national guidelines and in the design and scale-up of testing interventions.
Novel approaches to testing for sexually transmitted infections, including HIV and hepatitis B and C in Europe
This report focuses on novel approaches to testing for sexually transmitted infections, human immunodeficiency virus, hepatitis B virus and hepatitis C virus that are relevant for the prevention and control of these infections at EU/EEA level.
EMIS 2010: The European Men-Who-Have-Sex-With-Men Internet Survey
This report comprises the findings of an internet survey among men who have sex with men (MSM) from 38 European countries, making a total sample of over 180 000 men across Europe.
Assessing the burden of key infectious diseases affecting migrant populations in the EU/EEA
This report presents the main findings of an ECDC project to assess the burden of infectious diseases among migrants in the EU/EEA based on available data for specific diseases: human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), tuberculosis (TB), hepatitis B, hepatitis C, gonorrhoea, syphilis, measles and rubella, malaria and Chagas disease.
