Infectious Disease Surveillance
edited by Nkuchia M. M'ikanatha

Infectious Disease Surveillance covers many major disease surveillance systems, drawing on the experiences of leading experts from around the world.

Topics covered:

  • Offers perspectives on best practices through examples of a wide variety of surveillance systems from around the globe
  • Acts as a starting point for design of new surveillance systems
  • Serves as an easy reference for key information

Infectious Disease Surveillance also covers the use of modern technologies to track infectious diseases, including molecular epidemiologic techniques and electronic means for data collection and distribution.

Infectious Disease Surveillance concludes with a review of historical lessons learned from the application of surveillance in disease control—for smallpox in the 1970s and for severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in 2003.
