Epidemiologist, Epidemiological Surveillance Kingston, Jamaica

Background

The Jamaica Ministry of Health and Wellness seeks to strengthen the capacity for analysis of surveillance data at the national level.  This is in recognition of the increased availability of data and the need for rational use of data to inform interventions. This includes the use of data generated via routine disease/event-based and sentinel surveillance systems as well as the identification and harnessing of non-traditional data sources.
