This chapter describes the application of specific principles to the practice of public health surveillance in the developing world. While the fundamental principles of public health surveillance do not differ in higher and lower resource settings, several contextual factors impact implementation—interplay of national and international structures, the need to do more with less, and the complexity of numerous external (international) partners who are influenced by a wide and frequently changing array of global perspectives about health priorities, whose assistance might end or be delivered with unpredictable timing. The chapter offers strategies for managing efforts to conduct surveillance and to improve surveillance systems in such settings in the current context of global health.
