Integrated Disease Surveillance Programme

Situational analysis

The integrated disease surveillance project was launched in Haryana State in the second phase in 2005 with the support of World Bank to establish decentralized State based system of surveillance. The aim was to detect early warning signals of impending outbreaks and help in initiating an effective response in a timely manner.

            The Haryana state has been able to achieve, improved surveillance and strengthening of data quality, analysis, improved laboratory Support and links to action. Trained stakeholders under IDSP have been able to increase disease surveillance, coordination and rapid action in cases of outbreak.

Following graphs demonstrate the surveillance activities and the disease trends in the State of Haryana:-

           The reporting had started in 2006 august with the reporting units being approx.300 which has increased up to >3000 from the year 2009 onward.

1.           Focus Areas:

·         Surveillance:-   Supporting a surveillance preparedness to enhance immediate reporting of outbreaks, regular surveillance and weekly reporting. Emphasis on provisional diagnosis by medically trained staff from public and private sectors, to generate early warning signals for appropriate and timely public health actions.

·         Reporting:       Districts with fully functional IT systems with on-line data entry and analysis, referral laboratories &     priority     laboratories undertaking routine laboratory surveillance. Outbreaks detected by system within one week of first case diagnosis   in  Outbreaks  /rumors   reported by other system/media Verified within 48 hours. District undertaking weekly surveillance analysis of data including graphs for trends over time and maps of incidence by area.   Further training for district epidemiologist and data manager on use of the portal. Demonstrating timeliness and improved quality of outbreak investigation and response in all state. The 1075 call center will be publicized to health professionals, and would particularly serve as an important supplement source of information and outbreaks in areas where surveillance infrastructure is yet to develop.

·         Community Participation: The community health workers such as ASHA, PRIs, Religious leaders to be encouraged for outbreak reporting to the surveillance team, so that timely action can be taken to control the epidemic. The DSO/Epidemiologist will have the regular meeting and the active community members can be provided with in the form cash/non cash encouragement. This meeting will be done at the time of regular monthly meetings of CHCs and PHCs

·         Infrastructure required in district Mewat and palwal: There is need of one separate IDSP unit at Palwal. Mewat IDSP unit also needs a  Data Manager and a Data Entry Operator as there is only an Epidemiologist at Mewat who is looking after the whole unit. This will lead to strengthening of surveillance activities in these areas. The separate IDSP unit should be provided at Palwal and the remaining post at the Mewat should be sanctioned/filled.
