National Technical Guidelines for Integrated Disease Surveillance & Response

This document introduces the concept of Integrated Disease Surveillance and Response (IDSR), which incorporates indicator-based and event-based surveillance as integral parts of an Early Warning Alert and Response (EWAR) system. This section provides guidance on how IDSR works, its objectives, and how it can help to build and sustain the International Health Regulation (IHR) core capacities with support from National Public Health Institute of Liberia (NPHIL), Ministry of Health (MoH) and partners, thereby facilitating its implementation.
