Surveys / Reports

Notifiable Disease Surveillance and Practicing Physicians
Primary care physicians in Germany are essential participants in infectious disease surveillance through mandatory reporting.
In 2001, a new infectious disease control law (IfSG) was implemented in Germany. Most diseases are to be reported to the local county (Landkreis) health department from where they are reported by the state (Land) to the national surveillance institute (Robert Koch Institute). The IfSG also introduced national case definitions for notifiable diseases. The aim of this study was to identify the needs and attitudes of primary care physicians towards public health surveillance.
These issues were investigated in a questionnaire survey among 8,550 randomly sampled physicians in Germany in 2001.
