  • Description:
    Each year, EDEB summarizes surveillance results in multiple formats, including letters to state and territorial epidemiologists and public health laboratory directors, reports in the CDC publication Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR), and publications in peer- reviewed scientific journals. More information about these documents is available at the end of this report in the following sections: Sources and Contacts for Bacterial Foodborne and Diarrheal Diseases, Publications by Foodborne and Diarrheal Diseases Branch, 2004, and CDC Internet Sites Relevant to Foodborne and Diarrheal Diseases.

    This report is the second in an annual series summarizing results from nationally notifiable bacterial foodborne and diarrheal diseases case surveillance systems. A description of the surveillance systems is included to explain the differences between these systems and why they sometimes have different case counts for the same disease entity (see the Data Sources and Background section of this report for more information). The specialized sentinel site surveillance system, FoodNet, provides complementary information for a range of foodborne infections of public health concern from 10 sites. FoodNet annual summaries are available at http://www.cdc.gov/foodnet/reports.htm.

    Looking forward, EDEB is actively involved in advancing the nationā€™s surveillance for foodborne and diarrheal diseases. CDC-wide integrated surveillance systems are under construction, which may make national surveillance for many types of diseases more efficient. We are working to make more surveillance tools available to state and local public health personnel and more surveillance information available to public health workers, policy makers and the general public through combined reports and information available on the Internet.
