Infection with Streptococcus pneumoniae is responsible for significant morbidity and mortality worldwide, especially in the very young, the elderly and those with predisposing risk factors. It is a leading cause of otitis media, pneumonia, bacteraemia, meningitis and a less frequent cause of other conditions including septic arthritis and mastoiditis. Invasive pneumococcal disease became a nationally notifiable disease in Australia in 2001. Annual reports have been produced and published in Communicable Diseases Intelligence since 2001.
