Travel Risks, Precautions and Vaccination Requirements

map

EuroTravNet developed deliverables requested by ECDC regarding the situation on travel risks, precautions and vaccination requirements for travel. This work package included two subtasks:

"Information for travellers" section for ECDC disease factsheets

EuroTravNet delivered an "information for travellers" section for each ECDC disease factsheet. Where not already existing, for each disease EuroTravNet completed and added information relevant for travellers and for those giving travel advice, with a worldwide focus. Where such information was already provided, further development and updating as necessary were provided. For each disease, the information displayed included: Geographic risk for human disease and details on the prevention, transmission and possible symptoms and signs.

Travel health country information for travel within EU/EFTA

EuroTravNet delivered travel health country information web pages (in html format) for travel within the EU for publication on the ECDC website, and ensured updates on a yearly basis for the duration of the framework contract. The scope included the 27 EU member states (including overseas countries and territories [OCTs]), EU candidate countries and EEA/EFTA countries. The country web pages provided a comprehensive state-of-the-art guidance, containing information relevant for travellers and those giving travel advice.
