Early detection and rapid response to public health emergencies is critical if we are to protect people`s health and save lives. Public health emergencies may be detected through “classical” surveillance systems that gather data about patients or their laboratory test results; through event-based surveillance to detect reports of clusters of disease or unusual case presentations; and more recently, community-based and participatory surveillance approaches that harness feedback from members of the public. In this lecture, I will describe how at WHO , we have developed our Epidemic Intelligence approach to detect and respond to public health emergencies around the world 24/7.

Oliver Morgan is the Director of Health Emergency Information and Risk Assessment, in the Health Emergencies Programme of the World Health Organization.

This seminar will be chaired by Dr Mark Reacher, Public Health England Field Epidemiology Service.

This talk is part of the Bradford Hill seminars at the Cambridge Institute of Public Health series.
