Highlights

Map of Epidemic and emerging disease alerts in the Pacific

This new interactive web-based map provides an overview of the most up to date information on the circulation of epidemic and emerging diseases in the Pacific.

The web interface allows users to visualise the epidemics and alerts in different ways, i.e. by country, disease, type of transmission and over recent time.

Future developments will provide more descriptive and technical information on actual situations, and ultimately on historical data. Have a look!
