Reporting of Outbreaks of Foodborne Illness under the International Health Regulations


During the past 20 years, the global food trade has increased and, with it, the potential for the spread of foodborne illnesses caused by imported foods. The World Health Organization in 2007 implemented new International Health Regulations which help guide reporting of foodborne outbreaks. In this podcast, CDC's Dr. Scott McNabb discusses a study in the September 2008 issue of the journal Emerging Infectious Diseases which analyzed foodborne outbreaks in Australia in the early part of this decade and assessed how many would have been reported under the current health regulations. Created: 8/27/2008 by Emerging Infectious Diseases. Date Released: 8/27/2008. Series Name: Emerging Infectious Diseases.
