Abstract

The incidence of the dengue report estimate indicates that there are 390 million dengue infections per year. One of the Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF) prevention programs is epidemiological surveillance. Evaluation is required to assess the implementation progress of the DHF surveillance system. This evaluation was conducted in May and June 2016 at Lamongan District. Primary and Secondary Data were collected. There are 10 health centers that were selected as a sample by purposive sampling in Lamongan District. Data was analyzed descriptively. The results of this evaluation show that the DHF surveillance system in Lamongan has good acceptability. Meanwhile simplicity, representativeness, data quality and the stability of the data are considered low. As for the sensitivity, positive predictive value (PPV) and timeliness cannot be assessed. Information dissemination is done through DHF reports, by telephone, or in a meeting held with the health office. Surveillance data is used for decision making in solving health problems such as the occurrence of DHF outbreaks. Some of the problems found in this evaluation, are that attendance is needed to be assessed along with the timeliness and data external to the system to assess the Sensitivity and PPV attributes.
