Knowledge That's Contagious!
Hosted by the International Centre for Infectious Diseases (ICID), the National Collaborating Centre for Infectious Diseases (NCCID) is a non-profit organization that is funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC). NCCID is one of six National Collaborating Centres from across Canada, each focusing on a different area of public health.
NCCID's work ultimately informs public policy and better equips public health practitioners in their role of preventing and controlling emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases.
What NCCID does:
Informs public health practitioners, policy makers and community-based organizations about the latest developments in infectious diseases. NCCID also facilitates and builds knowledge exchange networks between these groups and academics and researchers.
Gathers, distills and disseminates current information, technology and tools on communicable diseases and ensures it reaches practitioners to the benefit of all Canadians.
Collates relevant information and helps public health practitioners understand and use the latest research and evidence.
Identifies gaps in research and knowledge and brings it to the attention of researchers and their funding bodies.
