Disease Surveillance Network Africa Evaluation Report

Functioning disease surveillance networks contribute to reduce the socioeconomic impact caused by epidemics. Once national governments and partners involved adhere to policies and strategies to contain epidemics and disease threats, strengthening of surveillance-response networks becomes an option and effectively contributes to improving health systems. The Disease Surveillance Networks (DSN) Initiative in Africa builds on existing national, regional and global initiatives, with the inclusion of wildlife health as a contextual adaptation.
