Interactive map of vaccine-preventable disease outbreaks

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

The map, available here, presents data about the location and size of outbreaks, the disease(s) involved, and links to news coverage. The resource currently includes information from 2008 to the present and will be updated weekly. Visitors to the site can contribute information about additional outbreaks for review by CFR staff.

The Council of Foreign Relations' Global Health Program is home to Laurie Garrett, the well-known author and commentator on global health and infectious disease policy.
