Sources of foodborne illness

MPI's research documents relating to attribution of human illness to food sources.

Attributing foodborne illnesses to a source is important for implementing controls to minimise illness and control outbreaks. 

The projects that 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.
