The Pacific Public Health Surveillance Network has five development strategies:

  • Harmonisation of surveillance data and development of appropriate surveillance systems (with priority given to outbreak surveillance and response).
  • Publication/dissemination of timely, accurate and relevant information, in various forms.
  • Training in applied epidemiology and public health surveillance, adapted to regional needs.
  • Extension of the electronic communication network to new partners, new services and other public health networks (telehealth).
  • Development of relevant and cost-effective computer applications.
