Communicable Disease Program

Program Description
The Communicable Disease Program (CD) has as its main goal the prevention of disease transmission. This is achieved by investigation of reportable diseases and surveillance for disease. Information is provided to the public about strategies for preventing the spread of disease. Examples include: hand washing, consistent and correct use of condoms, and immunizations.
 
Investigation of reportable diseases ensures that the individual who is ill has received proper treatment, has information to prevent transmission of the disease and that preventative treatment, when appropriate, is provided to close contacts at risk for disease.
