Florida enacted legislation in 1917 requiring the reporting of communicable diseases. As had been repeatedly remarked at the time, “No health department, State or local, can effectively prevent or control disease without knowledge of when, where, and under what conditions cases are occurring.” With this information which is gathered in an accurate and consistent manner, we can determine the kind of health interventions that are necessary to control disease and the areas where the efforts should be made.
The list of reportable diseases is revised periodically and is detailed in Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.) Chapter 64D-3. For example, a disease may be added to the list as a new pathogen emerges, or a disease may be deleted as its incidence declines. Please see the section with information for health professionals for a detailed list of diseases and conditions that are required to be reported by hospitals, physicians and laboratories.
