  • 1. IDSP – Integrated Disease Surveillance Project Dr. Rizwan S A, M.D.,
  • 2. IDSP – Integrated Disease Surveillance Project
  • 3. Outline of Presentation • What is Surveillance? • IDSP – – – – – – – – – – – – Phases of implementation Components Objectives Classification of surveillance Conditions under regular surveillance Flow of information Surveillance activities at each level Surveillance committees at each level Reporting Surveillance action Strengths New initiatives
  • 4. Surveillance
  • 5. Surveillance • Surveillance is defined as the ongoing systematic collection, collation, analysis and interpretation of data and dissemination of information to those who need to know in order that action be taken.
  • 6. Important information in surveillance • • • • • • Who gets the disease? How many get them? Where they get them? When they get them? Why they get them? What needs to be done?
  • 7. Key elements of a surveillance system • • • • • • Detection and notification of health events Investigation and confirmation Collection of data Analysis and interpretation of data Feedback and dissemination of results Response – Action for prevention and control
  • 8. IDSP
  • 9. Phases of implementation • Phase I (2004-05) – Madhya Pradesh, Andhra, Himachal, Karnataka, Kerala, Maharashtra, Mizoram, Tamil Nadu & Uttaranchal • Phase II (2005-06) – Chattisgarh, Goa, Gujarat, Haryana, Orissa, Rajasthan, West Bengal, Manipur, Meghalaya, Tripura, Chandigarh, Pondicherry, Nagaland, Delhi • Phase III (2006-07) – UP, Bihar, J&K, Punjab, Jharkhand, Arunachal, Assam, Sikkim, A&N Island, D&N Haveli, Daman & Diu, Lakshadweep
  • 10. Components • Integrating & decentralizing disease surveillance & response mechanisms • Strengthening Public Health Laboratories • Using Information Technology and Networking in disease surveillance • Human Resource Development
  • 11. Objectives • To establish a decentralized district based system of surveillance for communicable and non-communicable diseases, so that timely and effective public health actions can be initiated in response to health changes in the urban and rural areas • To integrate existing surveillance activities to avoid duplication and facilitate sharing of information across all disease control programmes and other stake holders, so that valid data is available for health decision making in the district, state and national levels
  • 12. What is integration? • Sharing of surveillance information of various disease control programmes • Developing effective partnership with heath and non health sectors in surveillance • Including communicable and non communicable diseases in the surveillance system • Working with the private sector and non governmental organization • Bringing academic institutions and medical colleges into disease surveillance
  • 13. Classification of surveillance in IDSP • Syndromic – Diagnosis made on the basis of clinical pattern by paramedical personnel and members of community • Presumptive – Diagnosis is made on typical history and clinical examination by medical officers • Confirmed – Clinical diagnosis confirmed by appropriate laboratory identification
  • 14. Conditions under regular surveillance Type of disease Disease Vector borne diseases Malaria Water borne diseases Diarrhoea, Cholera, Typhoid Respiratory diseases Tuberculosis Vaccine preventable diseases Measles Disease under eradication Polio Other conditions Road traffic accidents International commitment Plague Unusual syndromes (Causing death/hospitalization) Meningo-encephalitis Respiratory distress Hemorrhagic fever Other undiagnosed condition
  • 15. Other conditions under surveillance Type of surveillance Sentinel surveillance Categories Conditions HIV/HBV/HCV Other conditions Regular periodic surveys STDs Water quality Noncommunicable disease risk factors Anthropometry Physical activity Blood pressure Tobacco, blood pressure Outdoor air quality Nutrition Blindness Additional state priorities Up to five diseases
  • 16. State-specific diseases • Madhya Pradesh, Uttaranchal – Diphtheria, neonatal tetanus, leprosy • Maharashtra – Diphtheria, neonatal tetanus, leptospirosis • Andhra Pradesh – Filariasis • Karnataka – Filariasis, KFD & HGS, leptospirosis • Tamil Nadu – Leprosy, leptospirosis • Kerala – Leptospirosis • Mizoram – Cancer, substance abuse, acid peptic disease, pneumonia
  • 17. Syndromic surveillance • Fever – – – – – • • • • • <7 days with no localizing signs with rash with altered sensorium/convulsions, bleeding skin/gums >7 days Cough >2 weeks Acute Flaccid Paralysis Diarrhea Jaundice Unusual events causing death/hospitalization

  • 27. Warning Signals of an impending outbreak • Clustering of cases/deaths in Time/Place • Unusual increase in cases/ deaths • Even a single case of measles , AFP, Cholera, Plague, Dengue, or JE • Ac. febrile illness of unknown etiology • Two or more epidemiologically linked cases of outbreak potential • Unusual isolates • Shifting in age • High or sudden increase in vector density • Natural Disaster
  • 28. Surveillance Action Preset trigger level with specific response for various levels • Trigger Level 1 - Suspected limited outbreak – local response • Trigger Level 2 - Epidemic – local & regional response • Trigger Level 3 - Wide spread Epidemic – local, regional & state level response
  • 29. Strengths of IDSP - 1 1. Functional integration of surveillance components of vertical programmes 2. Reporting of suspect, probable and confirmed cases (Standard case Definition) 3. Strong IT component for data analysis 4. Trigger levels for graded response 5. Action component in the reporting formats 6. Streamlined flow of funds to the districts 7. Standard Formats, Operations & Training Manuals 8. Involvement of Private Sector
  • 30. New Initiatives - 1 1. Alerts through IDSP call center Call Centre operational with 1075 toll free number since February 2008 2. E-learning The objective of e-learning is to enhance the skills to a wide arena of health personnel. Proposed components: – Discussion Forums – Online Survey & Assessment – Feedback – FAQs Currently e-learning modules are being prepared
  • 31. New Initiatives - 2 3. Media Scanning Cell • Objective: – To provide the supplemental information about outbreaks • Method: – National and local newspapers, Internet surfing, TV channel screening for news item on disease occurrence. • Benefits of Media Scanning: – Increases the sensitivity & strengthen the surveillance system – Provide early warning of occurrence of clusters of diseases
