Public Health Ontario’s (PHO) Infectious Disease Surveillance Framework: Better data for better action (the framework) outlines PHO’s strategic approach to infectious disease surveillance. The focus of the framework is on improving data to better inform public health action, while strengthening infectious disease surveillance capacity and collaboration across Ontario. The framework establishes PHO’s key priorities, strategies, and actions that will guide infectious disease surveillance over a five-year period (2014–19).
The framework reflects the input of public health units, the health care sector, federal and provincial governments and agencies representatives, and PHO employees. The framework also supports and aligns with PHO’s 2014-2019 Strategic Plan: Evidence, knowledge and action for a healthier Ontario. The framework will be accompanied by a detailed implementation plan to be released in 2015.
