The WHO CC is dedicated to promoting public health and food and water safety through its expertise in Quantitative Microbial Risk Assessment (QMRA). This approach allows for estimating the health risks posed by human pathogens in food and water through various exposure pathways , such as consumption and recreation.
Our team has a wealth of experience in the field of QMRA, and has developed cutting-edge tools to accurately assess risk levels, such as the QMRAspot tool for surface water. We also support the implementation of WHO Water Safety Plans and EU Bathing Water Profiles, ensuring that the most current risk assessment strategies are in place.
In addition to our risk assessment expertise, the WHO CC maintains a comprehensive repository of references related to information on all of the FERG (Food and Environmental Risk Assessment) deliverables published externally. This information is updated regularly to ensure that we stay up-to-date on the latest research and best practices in the field of microbial food safety.
Our commitment to public health and food and water safety is central to our work. We are dedicated to providing the most comprehensive and up-to-date information available through the tools and resources we develop.
