Surveillance of communicable diseases is essential in all countries to prevent and control infections, to detect outbreaks and also to see the effects of interventions.
Communicable Diseases Module: 41. Integrated Disease Surveillance and Response
Emerging pathogens and infectious diseases continue to cause significant morbidity and mortality around the world; increasing global travel and changing environmental conditions compound new developing health threats. The International Health Regulations IHR , revised and adopted in by the World Health Assembly, were designed to help the international community deal with the risk posed by emerging and reemerging infectious diseases and other health threats. The Global Health Security Agenda GHSA , which includes 55 countries and stakeholder organizations, was launched in to help nations meet IHR requirements and promote global health security as an international priority. Within 2 weeks of the earthquake, the U. Haiti, an island nation of approximately 11 million people, is geographically divided into 10 departments consisting of 42 arrondissements and a total of communes.

If you create an account, you can set up a personal learning profile on the site. Currently, there are 20 reportable priority diseases or conditions in Ethiopia, which are included in the IDSR system Table Some of the priority diseases, such as avian influenza, pandemic influenza A, cholera, measles, meningitis and relapsing fever are likely to spread quickly and to affect a large number of people. Therefore, you should always be alert for such diseases in your community, and report immediately to a health centre if you suspect, or are unsure about, a case. What is the difference between eradication and elimination?
Integrated Disease Surveillance and Response (IDSR)
The scheme aims to strengthen disease surveillance for infectious diseases to detect and respond to outbreaks quickly. A large amount of data on disease reports are collected in order to be able to identify the outbreak of a disease, identify its causes and take corresponding preventive and responsive measures. An early warning system has been put into place in order to take timely preventive steps. The Project was undertaken to meet the World Health Organization Guidelines for South East Asian countries on disease surveillance to track the outbreak of diseases and its potential transboundary threats. The International Health Regulations of lay down comprehensive guidelines on the role of an International Health Regulation IHR contact point in surveillance of disease outbreaks in the country. The IHR that came into force in , places an obligation upon member states to report certain outbreak reports in order to track global disease trends through health surveillance.
The recent Ebola Virus Disease EVD outbreaks rang the bell to call upon global efforts to assist resource-constrained countries to strengthen public health surveillance system for early response. This study aimed to understand the state of IDSR implementation and differences between guideline and practice for future disease surveillance system strengthening. This was a mixed-method research study. Quantitative data were to analyze completeness and timeliness of surveillance system performance from national District Health Information System 2 DHIS2 during October to September Qualitative data were collected through interviews with 29 frontline health service providers from the selected district and 7 key informants of the IDSR system implementation and administration at district and national levels. The current IDSR system showed relatively good completeness
In Study Session 40 we considered what public health surveillance means and the activities it involves. IDSR involves carrying out disease surveillance activities using an integrated approach. An integrated approach means that data on all important diseases will be collected, analysed, interpreted and reported in the same way, by the same people who normally submit routine report forms on health-related data. In this study session, we will also consider the case definitions of priority diseases in Ethiopia, and how priority diseases are reported. Proper understanding of IDSR, the case definitions and reporting methods will enable you to identify, register, analyse and report priority diseases quickly and accurately to the proper authorities.
