Public health surveillance is the continuous, systematic collection, analysis and interpretation of health-related data.
As part of their work with the Partnership for Healthy Cities, urban centers are enhancing their public health data and monitoring systems by:
Conducting a population-based survey of risk factors for NCDs/injuries; or
Undertaking targeted air monitoring to identify important emissions sources and their impact on ambient air quality and health.
