This chapter begins by differentiating communication from dissemination. It goes on to outline the key uses of public health surveillance data, including detecting and controlling outbreaks; determining the etiology and natural history of disease; evaluating control measures; detecting control measures in disease agents and health practices; and facilitating formulation of health policy. The chapter then outlines a model and framework for communicating public health surveillance information, including developing and framing messages, choosing the proper communication channel, and evaluating the process.

Keywords:   dissemination, communication, framework, model, information for action, data use, surveillance, outbreaks
