Individual disease definition is found here http://www.health.govt.nz/publication/communicable-disease-control-manual-2012
Please note only acute cases of Hepatitis B and C are notifiable.
Not every case of acute gastroenteritis is necessarily notifiable, only those where there is a suspected common source or from a person in a high risk category (for example, a food handler, an early childhood service worker) or single cases of chemical, bacterial, or toxic food poisoning such as botulism or toxic shellfish poisoning.
Notifiable disease data collected and reported by agencies other than ESR is not presented in this dataset i.e., acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease and other spongiform encephalopathies, lead absorption equal to or in excess of 0.48 µmol/L, and poisoning arising from chemical contamination of the environment.
