Public health monitoring is an important cog in the wheel for public health care systems around the world. The data generated from such surveillance is used by governments the world over for the purpose of planning and strategizing policies in the field of public health. It involves keeping tabs on communicable, infectious, vector-borne diseases incidences within their boundaries. This paper aims to review some of the research studies which have been carried out on the public health monitoring systems worldwide. For this paper, specific search terms, such as “public health systems”, “public health monitoring”, and “public health surveillance”, were used in Google Scholar search engine and the results were shortlisted according to the year of publication. From the review of the studies available on the subject, it was clear that across the world, governments were engaged in collecting public health data using public health surveillance methods. These systems can prove to be beneficial for countries which are engaged in revamping their healthcare systems, as they can provide successful examples of public health surveillance and monitoring.
