Monitoring health status and understanding health issues is the first of the health department's Essential Services.
Epidemiologists monitor disease conditions, gather, analyze and interpret data on a daily basis, which allows the formation of informed policies and public health practice.
This in turn is relied upon by stakeholders, policy makers and the community at large in understanding community health. Setting policies that promote healthy living can only be done when all health factors are understood.
