Early Warning Infectious Disease Surveillance Project

The Early Warning Infectious Disease Surveillance (EWIDS) program works to achieve cross-border early warning detection of infectious disease health threats and events, and overall situational awareness of infectious and emerging disease activity, within the broader context of the Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Act (PAHPA), the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP),and the World Health Organization’s revised 2005 International Health Regulations (IHRs). The AZCPHP will collaborate with local, state and tribal health departments to develop and provide a GIS Workshop and Epidemiology Training. This project was sponsored by the U.S.-Mexico Border Health Commission.
