WHO guidelines for epidemic preparedness and response to measles outbreaks.
These technical guidelines are part of a series developed by the Communicable Diseases Cluster (CDS) at the World Health Organization. The purpose of this series is to update current knowledge on diseases with epidemic potential, to help health officials detect and control outbreaks, and to strengthen the capacity for emergency response to an epidemic situation. These guidelines have been prepared jointly with the Health Technology and Pharmaceuticals Cluster (HTP). The contribution of the Government of Ireland to the production of this document is gratefully acknowledged. (excerpt)
