Integrated Disease Surveillance Project Haryana
Updated information of IDSP
The integrated disease surveillance project was launched in Haryana State in the second phase in April 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. The reporting had started in August 2006 with approx. 300 reporting units which has further increased to approx. 3911 till date.
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. Further strengthening 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 the state. The number 1075 call center will be re-publicized to health professionals, and would particularly serve as an important supplement source of information and outbreaks especially in remote areas.
· Community Participation: The community health workers such as ASHA, PRIs, and Religious leaders to be encouraged and trained for outbreak reporting to the surveillance teams at District level, so that timely action taken can be maintained to control the epidemic. The DSO/Epidemiologist will have the regular meetings with the active community members with encouragement in the form of cash/non cash. This meeting will be done at the time of regular monthly meetings of CHCs and PHCs.
