Background and Brief Description

Formal surveillance of 19 separate reportable diseases has been ongoing to meet the public demand and scientific interest in accurate, consistent, epidemiologic data. These ongoing disease reports include: Active Bacterial Core Surveillance (ABCs), Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease(CJD), Cyclospora, Dengue, Hantavirus, Idiopathic CD4+T-lymphocytopenia, Kawasaki Syndrome, Legionellosis, Lyme disease, Malaria, Plague, Q Fever, Reye Syndrome, Tick-borne Rickettsial Disease, Trichinosis, Tularemia, Typhoid Fever, and Viral Hepatitis. Tularemia and Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureaus (MRSA) are new additions to this submission. Case report forms from state and territorial health departments enable CDC to collect demographic, clinical, and laboratory characteristics of cases of these diseases. This information is used to direct epidemiologic investigations, identify and monitor trends in reemerging infectious diseases or emerging modes of transmission, to search for possible causes or sources of the diseases, and develop guidelines for prevention and treatment. The data collected will also be used to recommend target areas most in need of vaccinations for selected diseases and to determine development of drug resistance.

Because of the distinct nature of each of the diseases, the number of cases reported annually is different for each. There is no cost to respondents other than their time. The total annual burden hours are 13,371.
