ABOUT THE ZIKA SCAN
In August, 2016 NCCID was requested by Canadian public health officials to conduct an environmental scan of jurisdiction-specific legislation, regulations and authorities for public health surveillance of Zika and emerging infectious diseases.
This web page presents the results of this scan. The contents represent the information shared with NCCID, from August to December, 2016.
