Abstract: Brazil presents particular problems for surveillance of infectious diseases. These include its continental size, uneven distribution of resources, difficulty of communication and access in some of the more remote areas, as well as large areas covered by tropical rain-forests. Surveillance for infectious diseases in Brazil has traditionally been carried out in a passive manner by government authorities or as individual initiatives. Most effort has been directed in the collecting and tabulating of data on notifiable infections. A limited amount of laboratory support has been available for the isolation and identification of the etiological agents. More recently molecular methods have been introduced in the analysis of these data.
