Abstract

Emerging and re-emerging epidemics continue to pose tremendous threats to public health even with medical advances and the availability of vaccines. Effective disease surveillance remains to be appreciated as one of the pillars of the effective communicable disease control program. This study evaluated the status and performance of the disease surveillance system in the different municipalities of the Cagayan Valley Region, utilizing a mixed-method sequential explanatory research design. The overall status of the disease surveillance system in the different municipalities is adequately accomplished. As to performance, the support functions and core functions of the disease surveillance system in most municipalities are fully implemented.
