The surveillance scheme EWGLINET, formally hosted on this website, has been renamed as the European Legionnaires'
Disease Surveillance Network (ELDSNet) and can now be accessed from this link: ELDSNet. Email enquiries about the new ELDSNet scheme should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
ELDSNet is coordinated and managed by the
European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC),
in Stockholm, Sweden. All case reporting and access to
information related to the surveillance scheme has migrated to their website.
Building on the historical legacy of EWGLI a new working group of the European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious disease (ESCMID) is being formed. http://www.escmid.org/research_projects/study_groups/esgli
The European Study Group for Legionella Infections (ESGLI) will have its constitutional meeting at ECCMID 2012 in London, UK. The kick-off meeting to discuss future activities is scheduled for September 2012.
Copies of the ESGLI/EWGLI Technical Guidelines for Investigation, Control and Prevention of Travel Associated Legionnaire’s Disease can be obtained via the ESGLI web-site
For the moment this EWGLI website (www.ewgli.org)
will be maintained by the Health Protection Agency Centre
for Infections in London and links to the EWGLI SBT typing
database, and the EQA schemes will be retained.
