Mississippi State Department of Health

The Office of Epidemiology watches occurrences and trends of reportable and chronic diseases, investigates outbreaks of diseases, helps interrupt outbreaks or disease problems, and reports morbidity incidence and trends to the medical community and other target groups.

Coordinating and cooperating with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Surveillance System, office staff also provide consultation to health care providers and the general public on such matters as communicable and chronic diseases, disease outbreaks, rabies exposure, and international travel requirements.

Reportable Diseases and Statistics

The Office of Epidemiology publishes reportable disease statistics monthly, highlighting significant diseases and providing statistics on their occurrence in the state.

The Reportable Disease List sets forth those diseases whose cases or suspected cases must by law be reported to the Mississippi State Department of Health.
