7 2004 Pan American Health Organization PAHO strategy for strengthening foodborne disease surveillance Technical aspects: –Improve outbreak detection and notification –Improve outbreak investigation –Promote quality assurance in diagnosis –Promote active surveillance of selected pathogens (Salmonella, E..coli 0157 :H7, Listeria, Campylobacter.) –Promote studies on social and economic impact of foodborne diseases Managerial aspects –Improve intra-sectoral coordination to address efficiently the food chain –Promote local surveillance systems Technical aspects: –Improve outbreak detection and notification –Improve outbreak investigation –Promote quality assurance in diagnosis –Promote active surveillance of selected pathogens (Salmonella, E..coli 0157 :H7, Listeria, Campylobacter.) –Promote studies on social and economic impact of foodborne diseases Managerial aspects –Improve intra-sectoral coordination to address efficiently the food chain –Promote local surveillance systems

8 2004 Pan American Health Organization How networking supports this strategy? INFAL and diagnosis quality assurance: –Developed an information system among member laboratories –Facilitates availability of reference materials and participation in inter-laboratory testing –Organizes and promotes programs for training and education promoting the sharing of experiences and resources available –Promotes and strengthens the intersectoral participation in building and operating national networks – Promotes and strengthens integration of member laboratories food safety programs and epidemiological surveillance INFAL and diagnosis quality assurance: –Developed an information system among member laboratories –Facilitates availability of reference materials and participation in inter-laboratory testing –Organizes and promotes programs for training and education promoting the sharing of experiences and resources available –Promotes and strengthens the intersectoral participation in building and operating national networks – Promotes and strengthens integration of member laboratories food safety programs and epidemiological surveillance
