injury mortality surveillance system (NIMSS)
Injury Mortality Surveillance System (NIMSS) produces information on non-natural
deaths from 37 mortuaries in six provinces. In essence, this
system involves the active collation and centralisation of routinely-kept
data. The data is currently biased to urban areas with only
Mpumalanga rural mortuaries included. However, the NIMSS is
being expanded annually, and will eventually process information
from all mortuaries performing medico-legal post-mortems.
