A package of information, surveillance tools and guidelines, to be offered as a service to countries

GARD collaborating parties and working groups have prepared an inventory including questionnaires for surveillance, scientific publications, web page addresses, training materials and guidelines that can be used at country level on the basis of the needs and local capacities.
