The Department of Disease Control focuses on the control of diseases that are insect borne, water-borne or associated with poor hygiene – mostly in developing countries. We direct our research at current health policy issues, including the gap between policy and practice.

Our work includes: 

  • evaluating disease control interventions
  • investigating implementation strategies - including working with the private sector 
  • understanding the factors underlying household behaviour in relation to family health
  • determining how control resources can be targeted most efficiently 

Publications by department staff can be viewed in the School’s online repository.
