The Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology (DIDE) is responsible for early warning, epidemic preparedness, and response. Port Health is coordinated by this unit as well as Cross-Border Surveillance and operates out of airports, seaports and ground crossings to limit the spread of public health risks while reducing disruptions with travel and trade. Currently negotiating a partnership with public and private universities to train and provide technical support in epidemiology and food safety.
