SURVEILLANCE PROGRAMME

A type of STRUCTURED PROGRAMME.

A programme delivered to individuals and directed towards the identification of a range of possible disorders or health problems which can be treated, or their adverse consequences reduced, more effectively by earlier, rather than later, intervention. The broad objective is the general oversight of health or monitoring of development which involves assessment of a selected group of the population by means of practical and uniform observations and measurements which can be applied rapidly.
