Foodborne disease outbreaks in Australia, 2001-2008

Background: Foodborne disease outbreaks are an important cause of preventable gastrointestinal illness in Australia. Data on these outbreaks have been collected in a national OzFoodNet outbreak register since 2001. OzFoodNet is a network of epidemiologists around Australia dedicated to enhancing surveillance of foodborne illness and investigating foodborne disease outbreaks. The aim of this study is to analyse national outbreak data to improve our understanding of and provide evidence for minimising future foodborne disease outbreaks in Australia.
