Abstract

In 2007, a European survey was conducted to compare national policies on public health management of cases of meningococcal disease and their contacts. An electronic questionnaire was sent to 27 national public health institutes; 22 countries responded (response rate 81%). The results of the survey revealed differences in definitions of close contacts and prophylactic regimens between countries. These differences can be attributed to a lack of evidence on optimal prevention and treatment strategies. The development of guidance for best practice in priority areas, based on evidence or consensus, is therefore recommended.
