Hepatitis Surveillance and Reporting
Surveillance is the ongoing and systematic collection, analysis and interpretation of health data for the purposes of planning, implementing and evaluating public health programs. The goals of viral hepatitis surveillance are to measure the burden of disease; determine risk factors; identify outbreaks; monitor trends; evaluate control measures, interventions and programs; and identify infected persons for medical referral, education and counseling.
