Applications of Syndromic Surveillance in Resource Poor Settings: A Series of Case Studies


Particularly in resource-poor settings, syndromic surveillance has been proposed as a feasible solution to the challenges in meeting the new disease surveillance requirements included in the World Health Organization's International Health Regulations (2005).


The aim of this study is to demonstrate how syndromic surveillance systems are working in low-resource settings while identifying the key best practices and considerations.
