We're looking for information on food pathogens in street foods in developing countries, specifically:

Names of organizations and people concerned with bacterial contamination of street foods in developing countries,

impact on the health of vulnerable populations in urban centers; quality control mechanisms that might be in place tools used for quality control.

Do you know who I might contact?

Many thanks
