Background on ICEDBIS:

The International Collaboration on Enteric Disease Burden of Illness Studies was established in 2004. The purpose of the collaboration is to facilitate communication between individuals who have conducted or are interested in conducting studies to determine the burden of enteric or foodborne disease.

The collaboration is a forum for sharing information and technical advice on the design, implementation, and analysis of ‘burden of illness’ studies. It includes a moderated list-serv, a website, quarterly conference calls, and an annual meeting. Working groups have been established to facilitate our understanding of the global burden of disease and contribute to global burden of enteric disease estimates.

Purpose of Meeting

The purpose of the annual meeting is to update the members of the Collaboration on the progress of the various working groups, to review experiences and results from burden of illness initiatives in member countries, and to strategize about future collaborative projects and priorities for the coming year. A focus of this year’s meeting will be source attribution, with sessions on various countries’ efforts to estimate source attribution, including attribution results for specific pathogens.
