2 What is Syndromic Surveillance ? The ongoing, systematic collection,analysis, interpretation, and application of real-time indicators for disease that allow for detection before public health authorities would otherwise identify them.Source: Dan Wartenberg PhD.

4 What are indicators of Diseases ? “ Indicators” are clinical symptoms & signs that we can categorize into syndromes, but “ NOT a specific diagnosis ! ”Example:Fever+ Cough+ Runny nose + Sore throat+ Fatigue= Influenza-like illness
5 Why do Syndromic Surveillance ? Early detection of clusters in naturallyoccurring outbreaks or a BT event– Minimizes mortality & morbidityCharacterize outbreak– Magnitude, rate of spread, effectiveness ofcontrol measuresQuick investigationDetection of unexplained deaths

15 Acute hemorrhagic fever syndrome Recommended Case Definition:Clinical case description: Acute onset of fever of less than 3 weeks duration in a severely ill patient and any 2 of the followingHemorrhagic or purpuric rashEpistaxisHematemesisHemoptysisBlood in stoolsOther hemorrhagic syndrome and no known predisposing host factors for hemorrhagic manifestation
17 Acute hemorrhagic fever syndrome Recommended Type of Surveillance :Immediate case-based reporting of acute hemorrhagic fever syndrome whether occurring singly or in cluster, from peripheral to intermediate and central level, in order to ensure rapid investigation and laboratory confirmation.All cases must be investigated, with contact tracing. Blood samples and appropriate clinical specimens must be collected to confirm a diagnosis as rapidly as possible.
18 Acute lower respiratory tract infections and pneumonia Clinical case definition and classification: PneumoniaSymptoms: Cough or difficult breathing andSigns: Breathing > 50/minute for infant aged 2 month to <1 yearBreathing > 40/minute for child aged 1 to 5 years andno chest indrawing, stridor or danger signs.Severe pneumoniaSymptom: Cough or difficult breathing + any general danger signor chest indrawing, stridor in a calm child.General danger signs: For children aged 2 months to 5 years.Unable to drink or breast feed, vomits everything, convulsion, lethargic or unconscious.
19 Acute lower respiratory tract infections and pneumonia Recommended Type of Surveillance:Routine monthly aggregated reporting from peripheral to intermediate and central level.Community surveys/sentinel surveillance to complement routine data and for the evaluation of control program activities.Sentinel surveillance reporting monthly to intermediate and central level. Quarterly reporting of community/ household surveys from peripheral to central level.
20 Acute (watery) diarrhea Clinical case definition:Acute watery diarrhea (passage of 3 or more loose or watery stools in the past 24 hours) with or without dehydrationLaboratory criteria for diagnosis:Laboratory culture of stools may be used to confirm possible outbreak of specific agents, but is not necessary for case definition.Case classification:Not applicable.
21 Acute (watery) diarrhea Recommended Type of Surveillance:Routine monthly/ weekly reporting of aggregated data from peripheral level to intermediate and central level.Community surveys/sentinel surveillance to complement routine data and for the evaluation of control program activities.Note: If laboratory examination are undertaken at the start of an outbreak in order to identify the causative agent, this need not be continued once the causative agent has been identified (unnecessary burden on laboratory facilities).
22 Acute (bloody) diarrhea Clinical case definition:Acute diarrhea with visible blood in stool.Laboratory criteria for diagnosis:Laboratory culture of stools may be used to confirm possible outbreak of specific diarrhea, such as S. dysenteriae Type 1, but is not necessary for case definition.Case classification:Not applicable.
23 Acute (bloody) diarrhea Recommended Type of Surveillance:Routine monthly/ weekly reporting of aggregated data from peripheral level to intermediate and central level.Community surveys/sentinel surveillance to complement routine data and for the evaluation of control program activities.Note 1: Laboratory involved in diagnosis of Shigella dysenteriae Type 1 should report confirmed cases.Note 2: Central recording of antibiotic susceptibility is recommended.Note 3: After an epidemic caused by S. dysenteriae type 1 has been confirmed, it is not necessary to examine specimen from all cases (unnecessary burden on laboratory facilities).
24 Antimicrobial resistance Recommended definition:Microbial isolation that is resistent to one or more antimicrobial agents on standard susceptibility test .Recommended type of surveillance:Peripheral level: Every hospital should have a surveillance system for antimicrobial resistance (e.g. routine weekly laboratory-based reporting). This must involve collaboration between microbiologists, clinicians, pharmacists, and infection control personnel.Intermediate /Central level:At minimum, reporting from sentinel sitesRoutine laboratory-based reporting (this may include comprehensive reporting of aggregate statistics as well as case-based reporting from sentinel site)Report should be at least once a year
25 Anti-tuberculosis drug resistance Case definitions:Primary drug resistance: is defined as the presence of resistance strains of M. tuberculosis in a patient who, in response to direct questioning, denies having had any prior anti-tuberculous treatment or for whom, in countries were adequate documentation exist, documented evidence of such a history is found.Acquired drug resistance: is defined as the presence of resistant strains of M. tuberculosis in a patient who, in resoonse to direct questioning, admits having had prior anti-tuberculous treatment or for whom, in countries were adequate documentation exists, documented evidence of such a history is found.Recommended type of surveillance:Data collection system (One National Central registry)Reference laboratoryRepresentatively sampling survey (3-5 years)
26 Foodborne diseases Recommended definition: The clinical case definition varies with the specific disease .Laboratory criteria for confirmation:Isolation of pathogen.Case classification:Suspected: A case that meet the clinical case definition of a specific foodborne disease.Probable: Not applicableConfirmed: A suspected case in whom laboratory investigation confirms the presence of one or more foodborne pathogens in a clinical specimen.
