Health in contaminated sites: the contribution of epidemiological surveillance to the detection of causal links

Authors

Abstract

The search for cause-effect relationships is a central aspect of epidemiological surveillance programs applied to populations living close to contaminated sites. Here are described needs for assessing causality in using different epidemiological study designs in association with the aim of promoting environmental public health, where uncertainties should be considered under a precautionary driven approach.
