Also known as the Manitoba Monthly Surveillance Unit Report, epiSummary provides a monthly review of reportable diseases in Manitoba. It includes information such as the current number of cases vs. the three-year average; the current monthly rate vs. the three-year average; the current monthly count broken down by RHA; and, the number of year-to-date cases. Reports before December 2013 are further broken down by age and gender.
Surveillance data is used to identify and monitor the arrival of influenza, its geographic spread, intensity of activity, characteristics of those infected, as well as severity and changing trends in order to guide prevention and control recommendations.
Within each season you will find weekly reports that provide a “snapshot” of the current influenza activity. At the end of each season is an “end of season report” which presents an overview of the influenza season in question. The influenza season generally runs from October to May of each year.
All reports which are released on an annual basis
Manitoba’s immunization registry, the Manitoba Immunization Monitoring System (MIMS), became functional province-wide in 1988, making it the first such registry in Canada. The aim of the MIMS Annual Report is to provide an overall picture of immunizations in the province. This information is used to inform priority setting, policy development, program planning and evaluation.
This report uses surveillance data to provide an overview of Communicable Disease prevalence in the province over the course of the year.
The first edition of this report is currently in the works. Watch for its release in the fall of 2014!
