National Surveillance Programme for Communicable Diseases:

National Surveillance Programme for Communicable Diseases (NSPCD) was started in Andhra Pradesh during 1997-98 and districts Mahabubnagar and East Godawari were selected for operationalizing the programme in the state. The State Rapid Response Team (SRRT) was trained at National Institute of Communicable Diseases, Delhi during 7th to 18th September 1998. Most of the then trained members of RRT have retired or transferred from the department. Hence, new state RRT has been reconstituted in February 2001. The Additional Director (Communicable Diseases) (Tel.: 040- 465 6988, E-mail acts as the State Nodal Officer for the NSPCD in Andhra Pradesh. Institute of Preventive Medicine (IPM), Hyderabad has been identified as the Regional Laboratory for the NSPCD in the state.

NSPCD cell has been set up at district level at Mahabubnagar. District Medical & Health Officer (DM&HO) acts as the district nodal officer. District RRT has been constituted and trained at Hyderabad. The composition of the present RRT (as of July, 2001) of Mahabubnagar is in Table-3.

Most of the medical officers of the PHCs/CHCs and paramedicals of the district have been trained under NSPCD. A computer has been installed.

Due to non-availability of microbiologist at district hospital and because of the fact that there is no public health laboratory in the district; Institute of Preventive Medicine (IPM), Hyderabad has been identified as the district laboratory and has been strengthened. Laboratory data from IPM for 2000 and 2001 are shown in Table-4.
