Abstract

Promoting and protecting the health of Iowans is the mission of the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH). Surveillance of notifiable health conditions is essential in establishing what, how, and when events impact the public’s health. Multiple divisions and bureaus are dedicated to accomplishing the goals of surveillance. In 2012, in addition to 850 cases reported with no lab results, there were more than 79,000 laboratory results of infectious diseases and conditions submitted to IDPH disease surveillance programs. IDPH also investigates non-infectious conditions related to lead, occupational, and environmental hazards like carbon monoxide. Approximately 100,000 blood lead test results were reported to IDPH in 2012. UPDATE: An amended annual report is also attached with this document, the amended report was produced on October 29, 2014
