This is a course on the surveillance of foodborne and waterborne diseases designed for public health practitioners and other students interested in the safety of food and water. It provides a broad overview of the major foodborne and waterborne diseases. The course describes how information from surveillance is used to improve public health policy and practice in ways that contribute to the safety of our food and water. We focus on the microorganisms and chemical agents responsible for food and water-transmitted diseases. We study the diseases they cause, the pathogenesis, clinical manifestations, reservoirs, modes of transmission, and epidemiology. The transport, survival, and fate of pathogens in the environment, the concept of indicator organisms as surrogates for pathogens, and the removal and inactivation of pathogens and indicators by water and wastewater treatment processes will be analyzed. Examples of the public health impact of quality assurance programs, such as Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points, to control foodborne and waterborne diseases in both industrialized and developing countries will be highlighted.
Target Audience – Public Health Professionals focusing on those who work in foodborne and waterborne diseases
