Abstract


Electronic Integrated Disease Surveillance System (EIDSS) was used to applied epi-analysis and prediction capabilities for situation in CCHF foci in Kazakhstan. Three indicators were used: population density in the CCHF-disadvantaged area; tick infection rate; human incidence rate. Maps generated in EIDSS allowed visualizing information and conducting a milti-factor epi-analysis. The CCHF outbreaks risk areas were identified. EIDSS software is easy to use, available for practical epidemiologists and can be used for analysis and prediction of vector-borne virus infections foci. EIDSS can serve as a basic working tool for field epidemiologists and the basis for managerial decision-making by the concerned ministries.
