BioSense program redesign


The BioSense program’s mission is to support and improve public health surveillance infrastructure and human capacity required to monitor (with minimal lag) critical population health indicators of the scope and severity of acute health threats to the public health; and support national, state, and local responses to those threats. This mission is consistent with the 2006 Pandemic All Hazards Preparedness Act, and 2007 Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD-21), both of which call for regional and nationwide public health situational awareness, through an interoperable network of systems, built on existing state and local situational awareness capability.



The objective of this study is that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will update the International Society for Disease Surveillance community on the latest activities for the BioSense program redesign (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, USA).
