2.  Health risk due to food contamination induced by urban flood - PhD student: Nguyen Thanh Gia

             With the aim of evaluating the risk of foodborne infectious diseases due to urban flood surrounding Hue city, we have performed field surveys, lab experiments and using models. We have taken data on contamination of water and oysters at the study site by field surveys. In parallel, we have made interview participants who are randomized to collect related information. After the lab experiments to obtain the key parameters for behaviors of pathogens in water environment, we use models, considering the geographical condition and the predicted occurrence of seasonal floods, to describe their behaviors at the study site. And finally the risk of infection is now being evaluated using the developed model with some supporting data such as the market trade and the consumption of the contamination food. On the other hand, based on the feeling of people in the study site, we are developing a new methodology to convert risk of foodborne disease to quality of life.
