What is public health surveillance?
If public health is about promoting and protecting the health of people, then surveillance is one of the main ways we continuously gather, analyze and interpret health relevant data to achieve this end.
Surveillance can warn us about impending public health emergencies. It can reveal how well an intervention has worked. And, with surveillance, we are better positioned to anticipate and respond to public health threats with effective policies and strategies.
Who should attend?
These courses are ideal for practitioners, clinicians and policy developers working in health services, health systems, government and non-governmental organizations.
