DHIS Awards Cooperative Agreement for NSSP Community of Practice

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Division of Health Informatics and Surveillance, has awarded the International Society for Disease Surveillance (ISDS) a three-year cooperative agreement to develop, implement, and maintain a community of practice for CDC’s National Syndromic Surveillance Program (NSSP).

NSSP’s Community of Practice (NSSP CoP), which promotes the use and practice of syndromic surveillance, will provide a peer-to-peer collaborative environment to foster and facilitate knowledge sharing and partnership. Working together, CDC, ISDS, stakeholders, and community members can leverage the talents of a broad range of public health practitioners to enhance the nation’s syndromic surveillance capacity.
