From Editors’ Desk
Welcome to Volume 2, Number 6 of the TechnoHealth Surveillance. The Southern African Centre for Infectious Disease Surveillance (SACIDS) conducted stakeholder showcasing events for the adoption of AfyaData to support disease surveillance systems in Tanzania, which is presented in this issue.
In this issue, we highlight on reflections from the roundtable discussion between the SACIDS Community-based Disease Outbreak Detection and Response in East and Southern Africa team and the Emergency Operation Centre of the Ministry of Health Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children to strengthen community-based disease surveillance in Tanzania.
We also share reflections from the Epidemiology in Complex Emergencies course that was held in France in June 2017.
In addition, we highlight on lessons learned from the latest Ebola outbreak which occurred in the Democratic Republic of Congo in May 2017.
We are looking forward to your feedback and comments on this and other issues of the TechnoHealthSurveillance.
Kindly do not hesitate to share with us stories on health-related events occurring in humans, animals, and environment which can be considered for publication in our newsletter.
