Description:MAHC – the Annex, 1st edition, August 2014
This effort stems from a CDC-sponsored workshop titled "Recreational Water Illness Prevention at Disinfected Swimming Venues" convened on February 15-17, 2005, in Atlanta, Georgia, in response to a 2004 position statement from the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists asking for CDC to convene such a meeting. The workshop assembled contributors from different disciplines working in state, local, and federal public health agencies and the aquatics sector to discuss ways to minimize recreational water illnesses spread at disinfected AQUATIC FACILITIES. CDC has been working with public health and industry representatives across the United States to build this effort since 2007. Initial efforts have been focused on reducing the spread of recreational water illnesses and prevention of injuries at treated public AQUATIC FACILITIES.
The MAHC will be regularly updated at approximately 2-year intervals using stakeholder input gathered through a process overseen by the non-profit organization, the Conference for the Model Aquatic Health Code (CMAHC).
