Standard case definition poster

To ensure accurate surveillance data, health facility staff must all use the same standard case definitions to classify cases of priority infectious diseases. This consistency is critical to ensure that the information obtained by the surveillance system can be correctly interpreted and used for decision-making. NIMR and PHRplus developed a laminated poster presenting the standard case definition for each of the IDSR priority diseases as well as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and viral hemorrhagic fever. The posters were distributed to all health facilities in the 12 project districts, and facility in-charges were trained to apply the standard case definitions to patients in a consistent manner to improve the quality of IDSR data.
