Our recent paper, "Evaluation of Diarrhoeal Diseases Surveillance System of District Kangra, Himachal Pradesh, India, 2007"-JRMEE Vol. 3, No. 1 March 2013
(This published paper, "Evaluation of Diarrhoeal Diseases Surveillance System of District Kangra, Himachal Pradesh, India, 2007" under IDSP provides First hand Information about its progress after its implementation in 2006-07 in Kangra_Himachal Pradesh but the good picture emerged later on)
In the year 2005, integrated disease surveillance project (IDSP) was launched in Himachal Pradesh to improve the information available to the healthcare providers on a set of high-priority diseases and risk factors. We evaluated the programme to identify its strengths and constraints and recommend measures to overcome the constraints identified.
Since its commencement in March 2005, IDSP appears to be moving slowly in the right direction with respect to regularity of reporting. We recommend training of all peripheral level staff with adequate funding for basic infrastructure and appointment of a dedicated district level surveillance officer.
