Food- and waterborne diseases and zoonoses

Food- and waterborne diseases and zoonosesThe ECDC disease specific programme on food- and waterborne diseases and zoonoses was established at ECDC in 2006, and at present covers 20 diseases. These include: anthrax, botulism, brucellosis, campylobacteriosis, cholera, cryptosporidiosis, echinococcosis, giardiasis, hepatitis A, leptospirosis, listeriosis, salmonellosis, shigellosis, toxoplasmosis, trichinellosis, tularaemia, typhoid/paratyphoid fever, variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, VTEC/STEC infection and yersiniosis.

The ECDC disease specific programme on food- and waterborne diseases and zoonoses coordinates surveillance of the above-mentioned diseases at the European level. In addition, it coordinates an urgent inquiry network which aims for timely identification of circulating enteric pathogens with potential link to contaminated food products or any other common sources with international distribution (e.g. feed).
