Introduction: The role of surveillance system is to support the early identification of diseases by monitoring the ecological conditions such as climatic events, natural disasters, and demographic parameters in order to access timely public health functional responses. Food and water supply quality are the essential factors in foodborne illness incidence rates that might be influenced by environmental conditions. Therefore, detecting unacceptable numbered cases suffered from foodborne illness in Yazd touristic province of Iran was considered as the main goal of this study.
Methods: The methodology of investigation was recognizing the gastrointestinal illness relationships with temporal climatic parameters in scattered parts of the Province during (2012-2016) by multilevel regression analysis model. The analyses were done using Stata software, version 14.
Results: The output of analyses indicated that relative humidity, rainfall, and dust suspended condition have been in association with the cases of foodborne illness in different cities of the Province and the highest rate of illness was in summer.
Conclusion: The ecological conditions have various roles on foodborne disease incidence rates in different cities of Yazd province.  Therefore, further investigations are needed for detecting the regional climatic impacts and more important epidemiologic factors should be considered for the control of foodborne diseases.
