世界卫生组织全球沙门氏菌检测网(WHO Global Salmonella Surveilance,WHO GSS)主要是加强成员国对沙门氏菌的检测以及相应问题的应对能力。
To support laboratories participating in WHO GSS an External Quality Assurance System (EQAS) was established in 2000. The EQAS supports the assessment of the quality of serotyping and antimicrobial susceptibility testing of Salmonella in participating laboratories. In 2003, the program was extended to include other foodborne pathogens as well, and the number of participants has increased from 44 laboratories in 2000, to 153 laboratories in 2006.
The EQAS is organized yearly by the National Food Institute (FOOD-DTU) in collaboration with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, USA; World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva, Switzerland; and with Institute Pasteur (IP) in Paris, France.
