Introduction
Outbreaks of infectious ailments, if not discovered and reported in time, can quickly
spread and bring about increased morbidity and death. Therefore conducting disease surveillance
programs is crucial. Disease surveillance can be described as an information-founded activity
that involves assembling, evaluating, and interpreting substantial data volumes that originate
from various sources. The information collected can then be used to analyze the efficiency of
management and preventative health actions, monitor infectious agent changes, and identify
high-risk populations. Also, the information can be used in supporting health planning,
distributing suitable resources inside healthcare systems, and providing a beneficial disease
activity archive for future reference. The main aim of this paper is to enlighten on the essentiality
of a disease surveillance program in preventing a particular highly infectious ailment within the
global population.
The Preventable Disease
Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a virus that attacks one's body's immune
system. Failure to treat HIV results in Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS), which is
highly severe and may lead to death (Fauci & Lane, 2020). HIV mainly affects teenagers from 13
years and adults, especially female sex workers, gays, lesbians, and injecting drug addicts.
Currently, there lacks an effective cure for the ailment, thus why it is crucial to prevent it. Once a
person acquires the disease, it lives in them forever and can only be controlled by accessing
proper medical care.
