Epidemiology Annex Example - Marion County


The epidemiology annex identifies systems and protocols for the surveillance and investigation of diseases of public health interest.

This 59-page PDF plan includes detailed explanations regarding the operation of investigation of disease and can be used as an example for other health departments seeking to use epidemiological data to promote the public's health. It includes fact sheets, flow charts, example forms, job descriptions, correspondence templates, etc.

A number local public health preparedness practitioners have commented that this tool provides an excellent example of an epidemiology plan for any size health department. In particular, reviewers have praised the acronym list located on pages 27-29.

The plan is detailed, thorough, and specific to the local area.
