Health Surveillance: Information for Action in the 21st Century

The symposium will focus on the role and practice of the public health surveillance, of both animal and human populations, in providing information for the development of policy and decision making.

Two international speakers, Dr Lisa Lee and Professor Roger Morris, will present plenary sessions on distinguishing characteristics of health surveillance, the critical developments in the area and future challenges.

Further sessions will be devoted to the interface between human and animal surveillance, based on the concept of ‘One World, One Health’, the theory and practice of surveillance in New Zealand i(eg,infectious disease, occupational and environment) and discussion of the health surveillance activities undertaken by various agencies.
