PLATFORM i

A global collaborative to transform our epidemic intelligence systems
so we can prevent and stop outbreaks in their tracks.

 

INFORMATION IS

OUR BEST COUNTERMEASURE AGAINST DISEASE

Yet, it is not effectively collected, curated, analyzed, or deployed to drive decisions that can predict, detect, and stop outbreaks at their source.

 
 
 

TO GET THERE

We need to bring together the best minds in industry, academia and public health to build on what works now and exponentially accelerate progress.


And we need to attract greater public, private and philanthropic capital to advance this work. By pooling funding, donors can align investments and share risk, so we can ultimately drive forward greater health impact.

HOW IT WILL WORK

BUILD A TRUSTED NETWORK

TO OPEN UP ACCESS TO DATA

Build a trusted network of data users and owners, creating standards, models and incentives for data sharing, making it easier to access data, while protecting privacy and keeping data secure.

ACCELERATE ANALYTICS

TO GENERATE ENHANCED INSIGHTS FROM DATA

Push new data science boundaries by building cross-sector data collaboratives around priority problems and fostering rapid experimentation on how we better use and combine data to extract more meaningful insights.

INVEST IN TOOLS AND PLATFORMS

TO PUT ENHANCED INSIGHTS TO USE

Invest in the development, testing and scale of the most promising data collection tools and common platforms that integrate cutting-edge analytics and ensure they are designed to be used by those in a position to take action.

 

We can't stop what we can't see. It's time to move our outbreak analytics into the 21st Century.
