      FoodNet news
    • Description:
      The Emerging Infections Programs (EIPs) conduct population-based surveillance and research to address important issues in infectious diseases and public health. These programs involve partnerships among state health departments, academic centers, and CDC. The Foodborne Diseases Active Surveillance Network (FoodNet) is the primary foodborne disease component of the EIPs.

      FoodNet Mission Statement: The mission of FoodNet is to contribute to the prevention of illness, disability, and death due to foodborne and diarrheal diseases by providing high-quality surveillance data. These data help determine the burden of foodborne diseases, monitor changes in the incidence of specific foodborne diseases in the United States, determine the proportion of specific foodborne diseases attributable to specific foods, and contribute to a network designed to respond rapidly to emerging foodborne diseases. FoodNet accomplishes its mission through active surveillance of laboratory-confirmed cases, laboratory studies, epidemiologic studies focused on specific infections, other epidemiologic studies, and investigations of outbreaks of foodborne diseases. FoodNet is a collaborative project among CDC, state health departments in participating EIP sites, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

      Our New Name: The Catchment has officially been renamed FoodNet News. Many thanks to our subscribers for all of their great suggestions.
