Abstract: 
PulseNet Latin America and Caribbean (PNLAC) was established in 2003 and is one of seven Regional networks within PulseNet International. The main objectives of the network are to strengthen national and regional laboratory-based foodborne disease surveillance for early detection and investigation of outbreaks to setup control and prevention strategies in contribution to Public Health. Participants perform standardized pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) protocols and analysis. For functioning, it is important for the network, the development of national and regional databases (RDBs) and the communication between countries, regionally and internationally. Metadata from over 8600 cases/outbreaks are profiled and isolated by PFGE and are incorporated into the RDB, hosted by the Pan American Health Organization. Currently PNLAC is moving toward whole-genome sequencing to use as a complementary strategy for surveillance. The aim of this article was to describe the experience of the construction of PNLAC, and its contribution to the surveillance of the foodborne diseases at the country and regional levels.
