Global Strategy on Comprehensive Vaccine-Preventable Disease Surveillance


This document is a global strategy for comprehensive vaccine-preventable disease (VPD) surveillance. It promotes the development of high-functioning surveillance systems that are: - Comprehensive, encompassing all vaccine-preventable disease threats faced by a country, in all geographic areas and populations, using all laboratory and other methodologies required to detect diseases reliably; and - Integrated, wherever possible, taking advantage of shared infrastructure for components of surveillance such as data management and laboratory systems.
