      Integrated disease surveillance envisages all surveillance activities in a country as a common public service that carry out many functions using similar structures, processes and personnel. The surveillance activities that are well developed in one area may act as driving forces for strengthening other surveillance activities, offering.   The concepts underpinning surveillance and the number of different surveillance systems in use have expanded rapidly in recent years [].These systems have been developed in various fields, either public health (PH), animal health (AH), environmental health (EH), or more recently, combining these sectors in a one health (OH) approach [].Although the need for effective surveillance Cited by:

        Infectious disease surveillance has evolved at an extraordinary pace during the past several decades, and continues to do so.

Surveillance data are crucially important to inform policy changes, guide new program interventions, sharpen public communications, and help agencies assess research investments.

Diseases/syndromes under surveillance will have different thresholds which will trigger an alert. Thresholds are indicators above which the disease pattern is considered abnormal or unusual and may require a public health intervention. Each disease/syndrome under surveillance is assigned to one of three thresholds for triggering an alert.

The emphasis has shifted from detecting developmental problems to preventing them and, in recognition of this change, the term “child health surveillance programme” has given way to “child health promotion Cited by: Effective infectious disease surveillance necessitates that physicians send samples to competent laboratories for confirmation of their diagnoses and that they report the findings through the public health system.

Surveillance is often referred to as the foundation or eyes of public health [].The World Health Organization (WHO) defines public health surveillance as “systematic ongoing collection, collation and analysis of data for public health purposes and the timely dissemination of public health information for assessment and public health response as necessary” [].Cited by: WHO Recommended Surveillance Standards.

Disease surveillance is an ongoing process that involves the systematic collection, analysis, interpretation, and dissemination of information regarding the occurrence of diseases in defined populations for public health action to reduce morbidity and mortality.

44 Surveillance can be conducted in the community and in institutional settings, where it may form the basis for an infection-prevention. The Integrated Disease Surveillance (IDS) Programme ensures the availability of guidelines for integrated disease surveillance and response.

It provides necessary technical support for strengthening national communicable disease surveillance systems through the implementation of the Regional Strategy for Integrated Disease Surveillance and the International health Regulations.injuries.

DALYs may be used as a health indicator allowing for surveillance and evaluation of overall health. Chronic diseases represent an important part of DALYs worldwide (Figure 1). Box 1 Disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) One DALY represents the loss of the equivalent of one year of full health.The type of surveillance for a particular disease depends on the attributes of that disease and the objectives of the immunization programme.

For example, when the objective of the programme is control of measles and surveillance for measles is started, the number of cases is high, and it is important to know where the cases are.
