Surveillance Reports

Tuesday 21st March 2023

The main purpose of surveillance is to provide information for action.  Information provided by regular surveillance reports enables effective monitoring of rates and distribution of disease, detection of outbreaks, monitoring of interventions, and predicting emerging hazards.

The Surveillance Reports are analyses and interpretation of surveillance data, primarily from notifiable diseases, influenza and sexually transmitted infections.

Publication dates for annual surveillance reports are here.
