Infectious Diseases

The Public Health Unit provides information and advice about infectious diseases to health professionals and the community. We work with general practitioners (GPs), other community-based health care providers, hospital clinicians, childcare and aged care facilities, and members of the public to assist in the prevention and control of diseases that may pose a public health risk.
