                                                  Acknowledgement
                        We deeply appreciate the Deputy Minister for Public Health and the Assistant dep-
                            uty for Preventive Health for their support and supervision of this activity.

                         Acknowledgement is also extended to the working groups of the disease surveil-
                           lance units for their keenness and commitment in providing data through re-
                           porting mechanism. The completion of this task could not have been possible
                          without the great efforts of HESN administration in maintaining the morbidity
                                           data base in an easily accessible manor.
