The Border Infectious Disease Surveillance (BIDS) is a regional surveillance system for monitoring infectious disease along the U.S.-Mexico border. BIDS efforts promote binational communication, exchange of epidemiologic data, and improves cross border public health infrastructure through collaboration with local, state, federal, academic, and international partners. Data and information gathered from BIDS enhances current surveillance for infectious diseases of public health importance and provides for effective binational disease prevention and control strategies.
