New Website Provides Scores For Nations’ Disease Outbreak Preparedness

IDSA’s “Science Speaks”: Site provides global view of outbreak preparedness
Antigone Barton, senior editor and writer of “Science Speaks,” highlights the recently launched PreventEpidemics.org, a website created by Resolve to Save Lives, an initiative of Vital Strategies, that uses data from the WHO-developed Joint External Evaluations to score nations on disease outbreak preparedness. Barton notes, “In addition to country level scores on national abilities to identify, monitor, and control outbreaks, it provides up-to-date news of current outbreaks” (10/15).

The KFF Daily Global Health Policy Report summarized news and information on global health policy from hundreds of sources, from May 2009 through December 2020. All summaries are archived and available via search.
