Recognition and reporting of diseases, most especially communicable diseases, is an
important step in the control and prevention of disease spread among individuals,
communities and countries. By virtue of their training and leadership position in the healthcare
system, doctors are relied upon for driving an effective surveillance and notification system.
The study assessed the level of knowledge and practice of disease surveillance and notification
among doctors in Taraba State, Northeast Nigeria. It was descriptive cross-sectional in design.
Data collection was done using a pre-tested, self-administered questionnaire. Data obtained
was analyzed using Microsoft excel and Epi Info version 188.8.131.52.
