Control of communicable diseases continues to be one of the highest public health priorities both nationally and internationally. Emerging and re-emerging microbial threats and drug resistance pose an ever increasing challenge for public health practitioners. Added to this challenge are high public expectations of protection from public health hazards, increasing scrutiny from the media, lawyers, and politicians.

This conference will study public health communicable disease control issues and examine investigations of recent disease outbreaks in Australia.

This conference is for anyone working in the field of public health or communicable diseases: officers of local, State/Territory and Commonwealth health departments; health practitioners involved in communicable diseases and infection control; epidemiologists; microbiologists; infectious disease physicians; environmental health officers and public health officers.
