Description:
This report outlines some of the health protection communicable disease work of the Department of Public Health in HSE East in 2012. It reflects only a small part of the public health work undertaken by Department of Public Health staff in relation to notifiable communicable diseases. In 2012, there were 81 individual communicable diseases that were statutorily notifiable in their own right in addition to outbreaks and unusual clusters or changing patterns of illness. This compared with 67 communicable diseases plus outbreaks and unusual clusters or changing patterns of illness in previous years. In 2012, apart from the pathogens recorded as part of EARSS (see section 2.0), notifications were received for all but 25 of the 81 notifiable diseases in HSE East, all of which required input by department staff. Of those diseases captured on CIDR (see section 2.0), in HSE East there were 6,691 notifications in 2012, compared with 5,684 in 2011, 4,679 in 2010 and 5,545 in 2009, an increase of 21% over the four year period. In the same period (2009-2012), the number of outbreaks increased by 27% (see table below and Section 4.0). For the Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) captured on the MS local Access database (and not on CIDR) in the same period, there were 7,129 notifications in 2012, compared with 5,828 in 2009 i.e. an increase of 22% (see table below and Section 2.0).
