The regional Pacific Hospital-based Active Surveillance (HBAS) system was established in 1997 by WHO under the PPHSN framework as part of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. The system has now grown to incorporate some 61 sites (hospitals) in 20 Pacific Island countries and areas and over 200 pediatric clinicians. It includes surveillance of acute flaccid paralysis (AFP), acute fever and rash (AFR) and neonatal tetanus (NT). This new web-based proposal is an outcome of a request from the participants of the 2nd PPHSN Regional EpiNet Workshop held in Noumea (June 2004).
