BCoDE – Burden of Communicable Diseases in Europe

  1. 1. Improving the usability and communication of burden of disease methods and outputs: the experience of the BCoDE software toolkit Alessandro Cassini, European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control GHME Conference, Seattle, 18 June 2013 BCoDE – Burden of Communicable Diseases in Europe
  2. 2. The experience of the BCoDE software toolkit – GHME Conference 2013 18 June 2013 Burden of Communicable Diseases in Europe project (BCoDE) • ECDC has initiated the BCoDE study in 2009 in order to assess the comparative impact of infectious diseases in Europe • A large academic and public health consortium is involved in framing the methodology and implementing the estimations at MS level • The BCoDE approach is pathogen-based following ECDC`s mandate to survey and collect EU CDs case-base data (TESSy database) • Models are incidence-based: results express the burden of acute infections and the projected burden due to sequelae
