AbstractThe panel will seek active discussion on successful and unsuccessful experiences using electronic tools to implement disease surveillance systems in developing countries. The scope of the discussion could include technical, financial, and social determinants for a positive outcome of the implementation process. These determinants and factors will also be reviewed for different levels of disease surveillance systems. A primary goal is to revise, refine and validate the presented model based on agreements or disagreements. Potential countries where this model can be further tested will also be sought.
