Deborah A. Adams, Coordinator, Ruth Ann Jajosky, DMD, Umed Ajani, MBBS et al.
Health-care providers in the United States are required to report certain infectious
diseases to a specified state or local authority. A disease is designated as notifiable
if timely information about individual cases is considered necessary for prevention
and control of the disease. Each year, CDC publishes a summary of the cases of
notifiable disease reported for the most recent year for which data is available. This
report presents a summary of notifiable diseases for 2012.
