Chikungunya Epidemic in the French Overseas Territories using Syndromic Surveillance

In December 2013, an emergence of chikungunya was observed in the French Caribbean region. Starting on the Saint-Martin island, the epidemic of chikungunya spread in Martinique on December 2013. The first cases were then observed in Guadeloupe in December 2013 and in January 2014 in the French Guyana. A specific surveillance system has been implemented based on a sentinel general practitioners’ network enabling the estimation of the number of cases clinically suggestive. Severity of this arbovirus is assessed using the number of hospitalized cases.

The French Emergency Department OSCOUR Network: Evaluation After a 10-year Existence

After the major impact of the 2003 heat wave, France needed a reactive, permanent and national surveillance system enabling to detect and to follow-up various public health events all over the territory including overseas. In June 2004, the French syndromic surveillance system based on the emergency department (ED) has been implemented by the national institute for public health surveillance (InVS). Beginning with 23 ED in 2004, the network has progressively included new ED and several steps have contributed to accelerate this permanent increase.

Comparing Findings from Syndromic Surveillance Systems at a European Level

Co-financed by the European Commission through the Executive Agency for Health and Consumers, the European Triple-S project (Syndromic Surveillance Survey, Assessment towards Guidelines for Europe) was launched in 2010 for a 3-year period and includes 24 organizations in 13 countries. Numerous European countries have created SyS systems. These systems analyze and report their SyS findings to local, regional or national public-health authorities in accordance with their national priorities.

Syndromic Surveillance of Acute Liver Failure in Emergency Departments (France, 2010-2012)

Syndromic surveillance is usually presented as relevant for event detection. As the data collected automatically from data sources is detailed enough (e.g. ICD10 codes), it may contribute to assess and quantify the burden of health events and describe their main epidemiological features. In France, besides the national liver transplant data, no surveillance data are available for ALF.

SurSaUD Software: A Tool to Support the Data Management, the Analysis and the Dissemination of Results from the French Syndromic Surveillance System

The French syndromic surveillance system SurSaUD was set up by the French institute for public health surveillance (InVS) in 2004. The system is based on three main data sources: 1) the attendances in the Emergency departments (ED), 2) the consultations to emergency General Practitioners’ associations SOS Médecins, 3) the mortality data from civil status offices and e-certificates.
