Attribution of sources of foodborne illness

Attributing foodborne illnesses to a source is important for implementing controls to minimise illness and control outbreaks. Find documents associated with that research here.

The projects which make up the human health surveillance science programme provide knowledge about the sources of most foodborne illnesses and how often they can be attributed to foods, the environment, direct animal contact or human to human exchange.
