Communicable Disease Investigation

 

Public Health Representatives are assigned the responsibility of detecting, preventing, and controlling infectious and environmentally-related illnesses of public health significance. A unique attribute of infectious diseases is that they can often be prevented, and thus, efforts to that end result in lower expenditures for health care and less personal discomfort and pain.

 

Environmentally-related illnesses are often the result of the interaction of external physical and chemical factors with other variables, including lifestyle, nutrition, and genetics. Detecting, preventing, and controlling both infectious and environmental disease provides enormous financial and emotional benefits to the citizens of Anderson County. Surveillance is dependent on reporting and the assistance of personnel in our local health department, physicians, infection control practitioners, and laboratory staff. Many committed health care professionals throughout Tennessee contribute to the ongoing reporting of disease.

 

The Communicable Disease Program focuses on threes areas: sexually transmitted disease services, tuberculosis (TB) services, and HIV/AIDS services. Tennessee public health laws give the Tennessee Department of Health responsibility for implementing regulations for the control of communicable disease in Tennessee. The Anderson County Health Department is responsible for carrying out these requirements in Anderson County.
