Abstract

Participatory disease surveillance systems are dynamic, sensitive, and accurate. They also offer an opportunity to directly connect the public to public health. Implementing them in Latin America requires targeting multiple acute febrile illnesses, designing a system that is appropriate and scalable, and developing local strategies for encouraging participation.
