2010 Publications

Waterborne Disease Prevention Branch (WDPB) experts write and collaborate on peer-reviewed publications, book chapters, editorials, reports, recommendations, and other studies on a variety of water- and pathogen-related topics. These publications summarize epidemiologic, laboratory, and other WDPB work that then serves as a foundation for improving education, driving scientific change, developing new public health guidance, and changing policy to best save lives and reduce illness around the globe.
