Abstract

This chapter builds on the previous one by broadening the focus of attention to national surveillance systems of waterborne disease. Three national surveillance systems are described: the ones in the U.K., the U.S., and Sweden. In many ways these three nations are relatively uncommon, even in the developed world, in having adequate disease surveillance systems in place that are able to detect and record outbreaks of waterborne disease.
