What is EpiSurv?

EpiSurv is the national notifiable disease surveillance database, operated by Institute of Environmental Science and Research (ESR) on behalf of the Ministry of Health.

It collates notifiable disease information on a real-time basis from the Public Health Services including:

  • Case demographics
  • Basis of diagnosis
  • Clinical course and outcome
  • Risk factors


It can record which cases are linked to an outbreak and it can produce reports and maps.
