Disease Prevention and Control Guidelines

  • The following guidelines have been published by PHAC to support Canada's disease prevention and control efforts. Many of them contain recommendations on specific public health topics issued either by the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI), the Committee to Advise on Tropical Medicine and Travel (CATMAT) or the Advisory Committee on Epidemiology (now defunct) as well as by numerous expert and scientific groups who collaborate with PHAC.
  • Within each category, the guidelines are classified alphabetically by main topic or disease condition (appearing in bold) and then by year
