The study was to contribute to finding solutions to problems associated with disease surveillance and notification systems in relation to epidemic control in local government areas of Osun State.
Survey research design was adopted for the study. The population of the study was three hundred and six (306) medical and health officers in the 30 local government areas of Osun State. Total enumeration technique was used to cover all the 306 health care professionals in the 30 local government areas. A validated questionnaire was used for data collection with response rate of 93.1% and data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics.
Findings revealed that positive and significant relationship exists between disease surveillance and notification systems and epidemic control (Df = 283, N = 285, r = .732**, p < 0.05). It implies that a unit increase in disease surveillance and notification systems will increase the tendency for epidemic control activities in the studied area.
The study recommended that State government and the management of LGAs via ministry of health should ensure constant implementation of various strategies that are very essential to an effective epidemic control intervention. State and LGAs should provide logistics and materials to facilitate timely collection, processing, storage, analysis, dissemination and the use of surveillance information as well as adequate financing of its essential sub-systems and components among others.
