FSANZ and other government agencies in Australia and New Zealand monitor the food supply to ensure that it is safe, and that foods comply with standards for microbiological contaminants, pesticide residue limits and chemical contamination. FSANZ has a Bi-National Surveillance and Enforcement Strategy which allows food/health agencies in Australia and New Zealand to discuss and share information about monitoring and surveillance of the food chain in Australia and New Zealand. FSANZ acts as the central point for collection of Food surveillance data from public health units in Australia and New Zealand. This data includes the results of general compliance testing, and specially targeted surveys conducted in the various jurisdictions.

This article presents a review of current approaches to risk-based surveillance in veterinary health and medicine. Emerging animal and zoonotic diseases and increasing international trade have resulted in an increased demand for veterinary surveillance systems. However, human and financial resources available to support government veterinary services are becoming more and more limited in many countries world-wide. Intuitively, issues that present higher risks merit higher priority for surveillance resources as investments will yield higher benefit-cost ratios. The rapid rate of acceptance of this core concept of risk-based surveillance has outpaced the development of its theoretical and practical bases.

This document describes the evolving role of participatory and rapid rural appraisal techniques in veterinary epidemiology with particular reference to disease surveillance. The use of participatory and qualitative research techniques is discussed in relation to conventional quantitative research. The document addresses the methods used in qualitative enquiry to assure that the analysis is rigorous and that results are trustworthy (Pretty, 1994). It also presents a number of PRA tools that have been applied in animal health reconnaissance and suggests other tools that may merit application. Finally, future directions for participatory qualitative research are discussed relative to the challenges facing veterinary epidemiology today.

The Foodborne Outbreak Online Database has been designed to allow the public direct access to information on foodborne outbreaks reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Most outbreaks are reported to the National Outbreak Reporting System (NORS) by the state, local, territorial, or tribal health department that conducted the outbreak investigation. Outbreak reporting is voluntary. Multi-state outbreaks are generally reported to NORS by CDC.

This is achieved through the detailing of health measures to be used by Competent Authorities of importing and exporting countries to avoid the transfer of agents pathogenic for animals or humans, while avoiding unjustified sanitary barriers. Disease diagnoses, surveillance, risk analysis, general recommendations, veterinary public health, and animal welfare are all topics included.

These guidelines have been written for public health practitioners, food and health inspectors, district and national medical officers, laboratory personnel and others who may undertake or participate in the investigation and control of foodborne disease outbreaks. While the book focuses on practical aspects of outbreak investigation and control, it also provides generic guidance that can be adapted to individual countries and local requirements. At the field level it will be valuable in initial epidemiological, environmental and laboratory investigations, in implementation of appropriate control measures, and in alerting investigators to the need to seek assistance for more complex situations. At national and regional levels, the guidelines will assist decision-makers in identifying and coordinating resources and in creating an environment appropriate for the successful management of foodborne disease outbreaks.

C-EnterNet is designed to cover 5 or 6 sentinel sites across Canada with continuous and episodic surveillance activities for each of four components: humans, food, water, and food animals. Most of the planned surveillance activities have been implemented in the Region of Waterloo, Ontario over the course of 2005. More specifically, C-EnterNet was able to generate site-specific incidences for reportable human enteric diseases and risk factor data for endemic cases. In addition, C-EnterNet began to collect pathogen data from most of the a priori important sources of exposure within the site’s geographical area, including untreated surface water, stored and fresh manure from dairy and swine farms, and retail raw meat. This inaugural report provides results of the first 12 months of operation, from mid-2005 to mid-2006.

The National Enteric Surveillance Program (NESP) is a national surveillance program designed to provide timely analysis and reporting of laboratory confirmed enteric disease cases in Canada. NESP attempts to provide an up-to-date picture of the current status of major enteric infectious diseases in the human population such as Salmonella, Campylobacter, Shigella, Vibrio, Verotoxigenic E. coli, Yersinia and more recently intestinal parasitic organisms such as Giardia, Cryptosporidium, Entamoeba and Cyclospora as well as enteric viruses such as Norovirus and Rotavirus. Using the program, it is possible to find a list of reports with annual summaries of data, ranging from 1999 through 2006.
