GEA-IZQUIERDO, Enrique; MEZONES-HOLGUIN, Edward  y  HARO-GARCIA, Luis. Actions for legionellosis prevention and control: a challenge for public health in Spain. Rev Peru Med Exp Salud Publica [online]. 2012, vol.29, n.2, pp. 272-276. ISSN 1726-4634.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1726-46342012000200018.

Legionellosis is a respiratory disease originating in systems that produce aerosol and contain Legionella sp. In recent decades, Spain has developed a regulatory framework for prevention and control of legionellosis. This article describes the epidemiology of legionellosis and the importance of controlling the transmission of bacteria in the fight against the disease. In that regard, it becomes clear the role of reviewing critical facilities and the inclusion of new ones in the preventive legislation, the estimation of risk, and the improvement in the diagnostic processes and progress in new prevention protocols.
