PHO has established a Coordinating Committee and four advisory committees to provide expert advice, develop evidence-based knowledge products (best practice documents) and provide broad-based field advice. These advisory committees draw on the dedication of health care practitioners with expertise in infectious disease, infection prevention and control, epidemiology, public health, occupational health and safety and veterinary medicine. The four advisory committees provide advice to PHO on matters related to:
• Communicable diseases
• Infection prevention and control
PIDAC was originally established in 2004 in response to the recommendation by the Expert Panel on SARS and Infectious Disease Control (Walker Panel) to provide a standing source of expert advice on infectious diseases in Ontario. Since that time, PIDAC continues to contribute to a significant body of knowledge and advice on matters related to prevention, surveillance and control measures necessary to protect the people of Ontario from infectious disease.
All questions and inquiries related to the Provincial Infectious Diseases Advisory Committees are welcomed. Contact us at email@example.com
