Collaboration & Support
EWARS places high importance on bringing partners together and making them feel part of a wider community.
EWARS provides a collaborative environment that aims to forge consensus around agreed technical standards and guidance.
EWARS is an adjunct, not a substitute, for the national disease surveillance system. It is time limited for the duration of the emergency only.
