What Is a Notifiable Condition

See reporting requirements for HIV/AIDS and other reportable sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) at /hivstd/healthcare/reporting.shtm. Information on whether a disease is reportable can be found in the list of reportable conditions (PDF 62 KB). A reportable disease is any disease that must be reported by law to government agencies. Compiling information allows authorities to monitor the disease and quickly warn of possible outbreaks. In the case of livestock diseases, there may also be a legal obligation to kill infected livestock after notification. Many governments have adopted regulations for the reporting of diseases in humans and animals (usually farm animals). [Citation needed] Additional information on vaccines for the notifiable disease, possible sources of infection, or travel history may also be collected if this information is relevant to the type of reportable disease. There are a number of infectious or communicable diseases that must be “reported” to SA Health by law. These infectious or communicable diseases are commonly referred to as reportable conditions. When and how clinicians must inform SA Health of the occurrence of reportable diseases under the Public health and Environmental Act The current list of reportable diseases is written in Article D3113-6 of the Public Health Code and Article D3113-7 (last revised in 2012), it contains 33 diseases: 31 infectious diseases and 2 non-infectious diseases directly related to the environment (lead poisoning and mesothelioma). Reports on the disease and distribution of certain medications are sent to a regional government agency called the Regional Health Agency by: There are about 70 diseases or conditions that need to be reported to SA Health. These include WHO notes that “notification is now based on the determination of an event in the territory of a State Party that may constitute a public health emergency of international concern”.

This non-disease-specific definition of “reportable events” extends the scope of the IHR (2005) to all new or evolving risks to international public health, taking into account the context in which the event occurs. These reportable events can go beyond communicable diseases and originate from any origin or source. This general reporting obligation aims to detect at an early stage all public health events that could have serious and international consequences and to prevent or contain them at source through an appropriate response before they spread across borders. [4] Only infectious diseases are notifiable to the authorities. The full list can be found in Article L. 223-22 of the Rural Code, it is updated with each new entry in lists A and B of the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) and with the mandatory lists of the European Union. WHAT: Conditions to report to Texas. In addition to these conditions, outbreaks, exotic diseases and unusual group outbreaks should be reported. All diseases must be reported by name, age, gender, race/ethnicity, date of birth, address, telephone number, disease, disease, disease, disease, method of diagnosis as well as the name, address and telephone number of the doctor.

HOW: Most reportable conditions or other diseases that may be important to public health should be reported directly to local or health regions. See Exceptions marked with an * above in the Texas list of reportable conditions. Paper report forms can be obtained by calling your local or health service area or by downloading them in PDF format (Epi-2 for detailed case-by-case reports from health care providers or Epi-1 for less detailed multiple reports). As a last resort or in an emergency, reports can be sent by phone to the State Office at 888-963-7111. After work, this number reaches the doctor/epidemiologist on call. The national notifiable disease list provides comprehensive coverage of diseases that occur in the United States. The list is compiled through a joint effort between government health ministries and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Disease reporting is required by state laws and regulations, so diseases considered notifiable vary from state to state. Internationally notifiable diseases (e.g. B cholera, plague and yellow fever) must also be notified in accordance with the International Health Regulations of the World Health Organization. The following list contains water-related and waterborne diseases that need to be notified nationally. .
