IMA supports timely notification of notifiable diseases
 
A notifiable disease is any disease that is to be reported to government authorities as required by the law. India has a double burden of NCDs and communicable diseases, despite the disease epidemiology transitioning to noncommunicable diseases because communicable diseases continue to be prevalent in the country and be major public health concerns. 

 Every now and then, dengue makes it appearance, taking on an epidemic form. Last year, the national capital faced an unprecedented high number of Chikungunya cases. Cases of Bird flu have been reported. China is in the midst of an ongoing avian influenza A epidemic. With blurring of international boundaries and increasing travel, there is a threat of global spread of any infectious disease. The recent Zika virus infection outbreak in Mexico was declared a public health emergency of international concern. Zika is still spreading.

Doctors alone can no longer be responsible for Public health. Prevention and control of outbreaks also requires commitment on the part of Policy makers, administrators and all stakeholders.
