Introduction: The role of surveillance system is to supporting the early identification of diseases by the monitoring of 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. So Therefore, that detecting on the unacceptable numbered cases that 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 In the present study, recognizing the gastrointestinal illness relationships with temporal climatic parameters in geographical scatter parts of the Province during 2012-2016 was done by using multilevel regression analysis model. The analyses were done using Stata software, version 14.
Results: studying the 729 cases of foodborne diseases related to climatic variations in Yazd Providence, 64 cases of Salmonellosis, 68 cases of shigellosis, 91 cases of Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli, and 57 cases of Citrobacter freundii foodborne disease were found.
