EPI-BRAIN is an innovative global platform that allows experts in data and public
health to analyze large datasets for emergency preparedness and response.
EPI-BRAIN will strengthen preparation for and response to outbreaks
Epidemics such as SARS (2003), pandemic influenza (2009), Ebola (2014), plague (2017) continue to threaten global health despite medical advances. Highly mobile populations and urbanization lead to disease outbreaks that can spread farther and faster, crossing international borders and impacting lives, economies, trade and travel.
EPI-BRAIN will enable forecasting and early detection of infectious threats and their potential impact. It will enhance the development of scenarios and simulation exercises and the sharing of insights to improve coordinated decision-making and response.
