Abstract

Progressive control pathways provide a stepwise, measurable approach to disease control. Documenting program progress, assessing intervention efforts, and the achievement of interim outcomes depend on the capability of a surveillance system to provide useful information. We demonstrate a practical surveillance approach that progresses from measuring broad disease epidemiology and risk factors to specifically evaluating intervention options and documenting low disease prevalence. The process focusses on aligning components with disease program outcomes using foot-and-mouth disease as an example.
