Abstract

Infectious disease surveillance is part of public health surveillance applied to the prevention and control of infectious diseases. The results of infectious disease surveillance provide the basis of planning and evaluation of infectious disease prevention and control programs. Therefore, a surveillance system for infectious disease functions as the first step in the prevention and control of infectious diseases. The most important basis for controlling infectious diseases is an intensive surveillance system for continuous monitoring of infection occurrences. Korea has overcome various infectious diseases that still cause social problems in developing countries, and continues to maintain adequate control of traditional infectious diseases. In this sense, this paper shares an effective surveillance system template that was developed over several decades. Such an effective surveillance system is expected to have positive effects on identifying the prevalence of a disease, discovering new health problems in a variety of fields, discovering the factors involved in the spreading of the disease, understanding the disease processing aspect, clarifying the scale of the disease, and studying the natural history of the disease.
