Abstract

The epidemiological situation of measles in 2010 in comparison with the situation in 2009, has improved (decline in the incidence amounting to 87%). The low number of measles notifications reflects the low sensitivity of the measles surveillance system. Irrespective of that, the vaccination coverage was sustained at the satisfactory level. In order to achieve the improvement of the measles surveillance system, promoting of the measles elimination programme among the physicians is necessary with focusing on the necessity to report and laboratory confirm all measles cases and the cases suspected of measles.
