[Epidemiological surveillance: family doctors' responsibility].

[Article in French]

Author information

Institut universitaire de médecine générale, 1011 Lausanne.


Epidemiological surveillance systems are essential and require efficient collaborations between family doctors and public health services. Such a system has to take into account the increase in the number of health problems to be studied. Information gathered at an individual level should imply decisions at a population level which in turn should impact on the individual patient. Epidemiological surveillance requires a well organized, representative and constantly revised system led by motivated, adequately trained doctors.
