Content：Since the establishment of Taiwan CDC, we continuously aim to construct a well-functioned and comprehensive communicable disease control system through employing mobilization, quick response, effective strategies, and international cooperation. Ensuring the source of real-time disease surveillance information is consistently comprehensive, stable, and well-organized lays the foundation of an effective communicable disease control system. Further, periodic analysis and interpretation of disease surveillance data can assist policymakers in constructing appropriate responses and decisions accordingly. In view of this, Taiwan CDC annually publishes the previous year’s surveillance report of communicable diseases. This 2011 report records all epidemiological statistics on notifiable diseases and operating results of Taiwan’s surveillance systems that is expected to promote public cognition and understanding on surveillance and control for communicable diseases, and to retain the epidemic records as well.
