The EpiCore project is now officially launched. This is a project that draws on the knowledge and skills of trained health professionals around the world to verify outbreaks of emerging infectious diseases using innovative surveillance methods that can help find outbreaks faster than traditional methods.

The project is the product of a partnership between the Skoll Global Threats Fund, HealthMap, ProMED-mail, and TEPHINET.

It creates a virtual community through its moderated digital platform that provides online training, allows resource sharing, and facilitates communication between EpiCore members in order to improve outbreak detection around the world.

Now you have a chance to apply to become one of the pioneer members of EpiCore. To do so, go to www.epicore.org, then click on the "Apply" button and fill out the application form.

This development marks the change in the landscape of disease outbreak detection. If you have any questions about this project, please do not hesitate to contact us at info [at] epicore [dot] org.
