Global Atlas of Infectious Diseases
Entry ID: WHO_GlobalAtlas

[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: In a single electronic platform, the WHO's Communicable Disease Global Atlas is
bringing together for analysis and comparison standardized data and statistics
for infectious diseases at country, regional, and global levels. The analysis
and interpretation of data are further supported through information on
demography, socioeconomic conditions, and environmental factors. In so doing,
the Atlas specifically acknowledges the broad range of determinants that
influence patterns of infectious disease transmission. Over the next year, the
system aims to provide a single point of access to data, reports and documents
on the major diseases of poverty including malaria, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, the
diseases on their way towards eradication and elimination (such as guinea worm,
leprosy, lymphatic filariasis) and epidemic prone and emerging infections for
example meningitis, cholera, yellow fever and anti-infective drug resistance.
The database will be updated on an ongoing basis and in addition to
epidemiological information, the system aims to provide information on
essential support services such as the network of communicable diseases
collaborating centers, the activities of the Global Outbreak Alert and Response
Network among others.
