世界衛生組織全球沙門氏菌檢測網(WHO Global Salmonella Surveilance,WHO GSS)主要是加強成員國對沙門氏菌的檢測以及相應問題的應對能力。
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.
