Domain 2 - Investigate

Standard 2.3

Ensure access to laboratory and epidemiological/environmental public health expertise and capacity to investigate and contain/mitigate public health problems and environmental public health hazards.

Successful investigation and mitigation of public health problems and environmental hazards will often depend on laboratory testing, epidemiologist involvement, and environmental public health expertise. These areas of expertise provide vital support to an investigation and are a part of the capacity that a department should have to respond to health problems and environmental public health hazards.
