Participatory Surveillance supported by Ending Pandemics and its partners are shown on this map of hotspots for disease emergence.
If you know of any Participatory Surveillance system covering humans, animals, or the environment, we want to hear from you to expand this map.
More program details coming soon!
Early detection and early response are key to preventing the spread of any disease. Directly engaging the public to report symptoms in real-time can complement traditional tracking while providing useful information directly to the public.
To foster collaboration around the globe, Ending Pandemics has hosted three International Workshops on Participatory Surveillance (IWOPS) since 2012.
IWOPS I, United States 2012
The inaugural event galvanized this new approach to disease surveillance and explored uniting existing systems.
IWOPS II, Netherlands 2013
Participants explored self-reporting for all emerging infectious diseases by creating a standardized list of terms to track human and animal health.
IWOPS III, Australia 2016
Our expanded community of practice focused on the challenges of data sharing, privacy and ethics, and published a journal supplement.
