Alistair Woodward - The Lessons from Havelock North

From Sunday Morning, 7:10 am on 2 October 2016

The recent campylobacter outbreak in Havelock North has shown just how vulnerable New Zealand is to waterborne diseases. An independent inquiry is now investigating the causes of the outbreak and no doubt it will help identify the immediate cause of the problem but professor of public health Alistair Woodward says it's important society as a whole realises these outbreaks will become more common if efforts aren't made to protect the quality and sustainability of the New Zealand habitat.
