Purple Papers summarize peer-reviewed literature pertinent to public health in Canada and contextualize research findings. They began as the NCCID’s pandemic H1N1 weekly literature synthesis in 2009 and have since grown to cover other infectious disease topics in public health.
We hope these Purple Papers will fulfill some of the information needs of public health practitioners and will be of interest to our audiences. If you would like to subscribe or provide feedback, please contact us.
