2 Foodborne Outbreak Investigation, Hanoi, Vietnam 01 – 05 June 2009 What is WHO GSS? A network of institutions and individuals working in veterinary, food and public health disciplines committed to enhancing capacity of countries to conduct integrated foodborne and other enteric infections surveillance

3 Foodborne Outbreak Investigation, Hanoi, Vietnam 01 – 05 June 2009 WHO Global Salm-Surv Vision Foodborne and other enteric infectious diseases are a common cause of illness, disability, and death worldwide. We believe they are preventable, and therefore, place an unnecessary burden on society. Our vision is that all countries will prevent and control these diseases.
