1.8 What forms of surveillance are appropriate?

Depending on the disease, on the purpose (e.g. whether for scientific or other reasons), and on public and animal health perceptions, different forms of surveillance may be recommended, e.g. passive, active, enhanced, general, targeted, event driven and risk-based surveillance, and these are often interlinked. For example for rabies, different forms of surveillance are important (1) passive surveillance, (2) active surveillance, and (3) enhanced surveillance, which is sometimes considered to be a specialized form of active surveillance (for details see sections 2.1.4., 2.1.5., 2.1.6.).
