HealthMap brings together disparate data sources, including online news aggregators, eyewitness reports, expert-curated discussions, and validated official reports, to achieve a unified and comprehensive view of the current global state of infectious diseases and their effect on human and animal health.
Key features include:
- See all current outbreaks in your neighborhood, including news about H1N1 influenza (swine flu).
- Search and browse outbreak reports on the interactive map, and set up the app to alert you with a notice automatically whenever an outbreak is occurring in your area.
- If you spy an outbreak, be the first to report it using the app’s unique outbreak reporting feature. You will get credit as a disease detective and your find will be featured on HealthMap’s website (HealthMap.org).
- View both human and animal disease reports.
