New Publication: Steps to a Sustainable Public Health Surveillance Enterprise

Figure 1 in 'Steps to a Sustainable Public Health
Surveillance Enterprise,' illustrates the recommended
steps to a sustainable surveillance enterprise.
More than a decade into the 21st century, the ability to effectively forecast, detect, and respond to disease outbreaks and other events of public health significance remains a major challenge. As an issue that affects population health, economic stability, and global security, the surveillance enterprise warrants the attention of decision makers at all levels. Public health practitioners responsible for surveillance functions are best positioned to identify the key factors associated with creating and maintaining effective and sustainable surveillance systems. This paper presents the recommendations of a Sustainable Surveillance Workgroup convened by ISDS to identify strategies for building, strengthening, and maintaining surveillance systems that are equipped to adequately promote and protect the public’s health.
