Explain what the reporting protocol would be if an outbreak were to occur in your community.

With the increased mobility of human populations, diseases can quickly spread around the world. In addition, changes in vaccination practices have indicated an increase in communicable diseases that were once thought to be under control. These global health issues present new problems for community health officials. In this task, you will analyze a specific, recent outbreak of a global communicable disease that has crossed international borders (i.e. TB outbreak, Haiti to U.S.). Choose one of the following communicable disease outbreaks to address in your task:

•  avian influenza

•  measles

•  respiratory syndrome coronavirus

•  meningococcal disease

•  tuberculosis

•  malaria

Note: If you are a California student, please contact your course mentor.
