Foodborne Diseases Active Surveillance Network
The objectives of the Foodborne Diseases Active Surveillance Network (FoodNet) are to: determine the burden of foodborne illness in the U.S.; monitor trends in the burden of specific foodborne illness over time; attribute the burden of foodborne illness to specific foods and settings; and disseminate information that can lead to improvement in public health practice and the development of interventions to reduce the burden of foodborne illness. The project consists of active surveillance for foodborne diseases at 10 collaborative Emerging Infections Program (EIP) sites and related epidemiologic studies.
