11. Disease surveillance and outbreak response
General practices and other office- and community-based practices need to have systems in place to ensure prompt reporting of notifiable diseases to the relevant state/territory health department. Some notifiable diseases require notification by telephone.
Each health professional has a responsibility to ensure that suspected or confirmed notifiable diseases are reported promptly as required by health authorities.
The Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care maintains a list of nationally notifiable diseases.
Australian states and territories each have their own notifiable communicable disease lists. Many diseases are included across jurisdictions; however, some are only notifiable in one or two jurisdictions.
State or territory lists are available at the links below:
