Description

The prevention and control of communicable diseases are essential tasks of public health care. For this reason, certain infectious diseases are subject to compulsory reporting. These diseases are recorded by the Epidemiological Reporting System (EMS), which is mantained by the Department of Infection Epidemiology and Surveillance, Austrian Agency for Health and Food Safety (AGES) and has gained particular importance with the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in Austria in 2020. Infectious diseases are routinely and systematically collected through the entry of office-based physicians, hospitals and laboratories, which enables daily monitoring of regional developments. The list of notifiable diseases according to the Epidemics, Tuberculosis, AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Diseases Act is published by the Federal Ministry of Social Affairs, Health, Care and Consumer Protection.
