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.
