Assessment of Foodborne Illness Outbreak Response and Investigation Capacity in U.S. Environmental H


The National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) released a report on the assessment of the capacity of local and state agencies to undertake foodborne illness outbreak investigation and response. The report includes information on the potential impacts of ongoing budget reductions on staffing, training, outbreak response, control, and prevention activities, as well as the current status of inter-agency cooperation to share resources. The assessment findings reveal a significant overall reduction in foodborne illness program capacity.
