Surveillance is vital to the:

      • control of communicable diseases,

      • identification and assessment of the relative burden of diseases,

      • monitoring of trends over time, and

      • meeting international reporting requirements, such as providing disease statistics to the World Health Organization (WHO).

Fifty-eight communicable diseases agreed upon nationally were reported to the National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System
(NNDSS) in 2003.

There were 2,147 cases of notifiable diseases reported in Tasmania in 2003.
