Rotavirus surveillance

Surveillance is the collection, collation, analysis and interpretation of data for public health action.

Sentinel surveillance is surveillance based at designated institutions or sites, which have been selected for their geographic location, medical specialty, or ability to accurately diagnose and report high-quality data.

PAHO's hospital-based surveillance network for rotavirus began in the Americas in April 2006. Currently, the following eighteen countries and territories have been part of the surveillance network: Anguilla, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Dominica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, St. Vincent & Grenadines, Surinam and Venezuela.
