The Epidemiology of Communicable Diseases in the Winnipeg Health Region, 2011-2016

The epidemiology of communicable diseases in the Winnipeg Health Region 2011-2016, provides a regional surveillance summary of select infections/diseases listed as reportable under The Manitoba Public Health Act (with the exception of influenza, tuberculosis, and sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections as they are reported elsewhere).

The report is divided into five broad disease categories (i) Enteric, food, and waterborne diseases (ii) Respiratory and direct contact diseases (iii) Vaccine preventable diseases, and (iv) Vector-borne and zoonotic diseases, and iv) Emerging infectious diseases.  Within each section, diseases are presented separately with the type of analysis based on the number of cases reported in 2016.  As this is a technical surveillance report, results are limited to statistical tabulations by age, sex, and geographical data.
