This paper first describes a decision-theoretic model of disease surveillance and control. It then describes a prototype system for influenza monitoring based on the model. The decision-theoretic model connects disparate work epidemiological modelling and disease control under a uniform mathematical formulation. We expect that this model will stimulate new avenues of research in both fields.
