The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) is an EU agency aimed at strengthening Europe’s defences against infectious diseases. It was established in 2005 and is located in Solna, Sweden.

The ECDC works in three key strategic areas, as described on its website: it provides evidence for effective and efficient decision-making, it strengthens public health systems, and it supports the response to public health threats.
