Foodborne Diseases

ADPH’s mission is to protect the residents of Alabama and prevent illness by monitoring and investigating foodborne diseases. To accomplish these tasks, ADPH interviews cases of select diseases to identify commonalities, monitor trends over time, and target education initiatives for cases and health professionals. With timely and complete reporting of these foodborne diseases, ADPH is able to implement control measures to reduce illnesses, hospitalizations, and deaths.
