Torp M, Vigerust M, Bergsjø B, Tarpai A, Hofshagen M. The surveillance programme for Campylobacter spp. in broiler flocks in Norway 2013. Surveillance programmes for terrestrial and aquatic animals in Norway. Annual report 2013. Oslo: Norwegian Veterinary Institute 2014.

Campylobacteriosis is currently the most commonly reported bacterial infectious disease in the Norwegian human population. In almost half of the cases, the infection is acquired in Norway. Consumption of poultry meat purchased raw has been identified as a significant risk factor together with drinking undisinfected water, eating at barbecues, occupational exposure to animals, and eating undercooked pork.
The action plan regarding Campylobacter spp. in Norwegian broilers has been running since spring 2001. The action plan is a joint effort involving several stakeholder groups from “stable-to-table”. The Norwegian Zoonosis Centre at the Norwegian Veterinary Institute coordinates the programme, and is responsible for the collection and analyses of data and the communication of results.
The action plan is updated regularly and the details for 2013 together with other information regarding the action plan can be found at www.vetinst.no.
