This is a prospective, paired cohort study of the epidemiology of respiratory
pathogens in a cohort of Swiss Army staff deployed in Kosovo. It involves the use
of pre- and post-deployment nasal swabs which are tested for respiratory pathogens
by RT-PCR. Short questionnaires are also administered. These data will increase our understanding of respiratory morbidity and will form an evidence base for preventive strategies.
