In 2016 there were 16 cases of campylobacter enteritis in the NWHU catchment area, which gives a crude incidence rate of 19.7 per 100,000. This was lower but not statistically different from the provincial rate of 24.6 per 100,000 in 2016. Although, if we combine the previous five years of data, the NWHU rate over this time is statistically lower than the province.
