    The Integrated Disease Surveillance (IDS) Programme ensures the availability of guidelines for integrated disease surveillance and response. It provides necessary technical support for strengthening national communicable disease surveillance systems through the implementation of the Regional Strategy for Integrated Disease Surveillance and the International health Regulations.

    IDS establishes links with national Centres of Excellence (CoE), regional and global networks for disease surveillance thereby participating in global effort for the control of communicable diseases through the International Health regulations (IHR) implementation which will stimulate the IDSR implementation within the region.
