Abstract

For our opening session, we will have a brief introduction to the Hidden Epidemics research network followed by two talks exploring how surveillance systems can come to obfuscate large burdens of disease.

Freya Jephcott will present the case study of facility-based surveillance systems for emerging infectious disease in Ghana. Charlotte Hammer will talk about her experiences with shifts in surveillance and response from other infectious diseases to COVID-19 in 2020.

Following the talks Liza Hadley will chair a discussion with the audience, covering both the ambitions and scope of the network and disease surveillance systems as an apparatus of epidemiological obfuscation.
