Worldwide Vaccine-Preventable Outbreak Map

A Washington, DC-based think tank, the Council on Foreign Relations, announced the launch of an interactive map tracking outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases.

The map presents data about the location and size of outbreaks, the diseases involved, and links to news coverage. The information is from 2008 to the present, updated weekly. Visitors to the site can contribute information about additional outbreaks that will be reviewed by CFR staff. You can also embed the map and download the data.
