Communicable Disease Hazards

The fact sheets on this site have been produced by the Essex Health Protection Team. We are doctors (Consultants in Communicable Disease Control - CCDCs) with responsibility for the public health aspects of communicable diseases in Essex.

The fact sheets are intended for the general public and community health care professionals working in Essex. Some of the information and advice may not be applicable elsewhere. The fact sheets are reviewed every year.
