It describes the development and current status of state and local jurisdiction over the conduct of public health in the United States, the importance of the link between surveillance and community action, the role of the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE), and new developments in surveillance strategies. The chapter concludes with a description of the challenges faced by public health surveillance practitioners in carrying out this core public health function.
