What is NESID?

NESID stands for National Epidemiological Surveillance of Infectious Diseases, which is the national Infectious Diseases surveillance system in Japan. Notifications in accordance with the Act on Prevention of Infectious Diseases and Medical Treatment for Patients with Infections Diseases are entered by each public health center branch in NESID. The registered data is evaluated and summarized in the Infectious Disease Surveillance Center of the National Institute of Infectious Diseases and local Infectious Disease Surveillance Centers in all over Japan.
