HealthMap was created by a team of professionals at Children’s Hospital Boston. This map displays online informal sources for disease outbreak monitoring and real-time surveillance of emerging public health threats. The information provides a wide range of emerging infectious diseases all over the world, reaching a diverse audience, from a diverse array of sources including online news, validated official reports, eyewitness reports, and more. This unification of information made available on a global interactive map provides a comprehensive yet effective way to observe the current global state of infectious and emerging diseases.
