eSurveillance is the use of electronic systems to facilitate public health surveillance functions of prevention, prediction, detection and response for any acute public health event. The eSurveillance newsletter facilitates maximum return on partnerships and calls for efforts from partners, governments and non-state actors within countries to engage with each other.
eSurveillance can facilitate the work of every staff member in a health system but the main target is data management personnel at all levels, supervisory and disease specific programme personnel at intermediate levels, and decision makers at national levels.
