Poster – Public Health Surveillance Functions in International Jurisdictions
Poster – Public Health Surveillance Functions in International Jurisdictions

This poster presents an overview of an international environmental scan aimed at describing characteristics of national public health surveillance functions from countries with contexts comparable to Canada.

It sheds light on the imperative of infectious disease surveillance, especially highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic, while also pointing towards future challenges and opportunities such as real-time data utilization, digitalization, and enhanced knowledge sharing.
