The system allows the Communicable Disease Control of the Ministry of Health and the General Department of Animal Health Production to record and track any suspicious outbreak nationwide. The system was designed to incorporate the timeliness metrics and milestones of each event. The Verification Fund was implemented along with the Cam EMS to provide fund support to provincial and national levels for carrying out timely verification of suspected events for both human and animal cases. The Cam EMS system provides data sharing ability between human and animal cases with the objective of strengthening zoonotic disease surveillance and promoting collaboration between human and animal health groups.
The training and rollout of Cam EMS began at the national and sub-national levels (including all provincial levels) in June 2020
The Verification Fund package provides assistance for addressing the lack of resources at the sub-national level for verification of outbreak events
As of April 2023, 297 outbreak events in Cambodia have been verified, recorded, and tracked on Cam EMS
Project Period: July 2019 - March 2022.
* Post-project period: CCDC and GDAHP continue to use Cam EMS for their daily operations to monitor and record outbreak events in the community.
