Evidence from disease notifications, case investigations, outbreak investigations and epidemiological studies of human enteric diseases is increasingly used as a source of data for risk assessments and source attribution. However, its application is often restricted by the strength of the evidence presented and its interpretation. Geographical variations in disease incidence have long been described in New Zealand but their aetiologies have not been identified. A range of reports have described variation in the present system of public health investigation and the management of identified cases of human enteric diseases.
