FluID - a global influenza epidemiological data sharing platform
FluID is a global platform for data sharing that links regional influenza epidemiological data into a single global database. The platform provides connections between existing databases and can also be used to directly enter data through a web-based interface, if desired. It complements the existing virological data collection tool FluNet.
The platform accommodates both qualitative and quantitative data which facilitates the tracking of global trends, spread, intensity, and impact of influenza. These data are made freely available to health policy makers in order to assist them in making informed decisions regarding the management of influenza.
Currently FluID is in an early rollout phase. The tool links with one regional database and allows countries to enter epidemiological data online directly. Global summary maps and charts will be made available as more countries and regions come online and submit data.
