The principal objective is to further improve and expand a basic, fully computerized, infectious disease surveillance network for Europe to follow time trends in incidence of the 40+ diseases at EU-level and make available the information needed to interpret the results. To achieve this the project aims at the active participation of 28 European countries. Thus the intent is to expand the network and introduce the methodology of BSN to all 10 new member states. This project is intended to be a useful instrument to be incorporated in the ECDC. The aim was therefore to prepare the BSN for a probable future transfer to the new European centre for disease prevention and control. Cooperation with the disease specific networks is envisaged and also cooperation with international organisations such as the WHO, especially the European office to which the CISID (The Computerized Information System for Infectious Diseases) is linked. Furthermore the project aims at quality control and development of methods for interpretation and analysis of data transferred to the network.

The present project (EuroTB) builds on previous developments and intends to strengthen TB surveillance capacity at Community level taking into account the enlargement to the 10 new Member States and the need to prepare the future TB surveillance activities of the new European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).Its general objectives are to enhance surveillance of TB in EU and in the third countries in Europe and to apply innovative technologies to strengthen identification of emerging TB issues in Europe, including multidrug resistant TB (MDR-TB). Surveillance activities focus on the 25 Member States, EEA/EFTA and applicant countries and include as a core component the collection, validation, analysis and dissemination of data from national TB case reporting systems, based on individual case data sets. In these countries, beyond annual data collection on TB case notification, EuroTB is intended to: conduct ad hoc surveys on emerging issues in TB control and enlarge the panel of information on the characteristics and outcomes of TB control programmes; strengthen collaboration with other EU surveillance schemes (e.g. on HIV/AIDS, antimicrobial resistance) and projects (e.g. on training and on information dissemination).
