The GEORGETOWN INFECTIOUS DISEASE ATLAS is an integrated research platform providing access to a comprehensive set of global health security visualization dashboards, decision support tools, and data libraries developed by the Center for Global Health Science and Security at Georgetown University. See below for a description of each tool, links to the sites, and access to a quick download of the data from each.

WEBSITES AND TOOLS
COVID AMP
ANALYSIS AND
MAPPING OF POLICIES
(a product of COVID-Local)
covid-local.org/amp

The COVID Analysis and Mapping of Policies (AMP) visualization tool is a comprehensive database of policies and plans to address the COVID-19 pandemic. Decision-makers can use COVID AMP’s user-friendly interface to easily identify effective policies and plans to reduce the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

COVID AMP is part of the COVID-Local suite of free resources developed for local decision-makers who are working to keep their communities safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID AMP library includes policies and plans published by subnational governments or private and non-profit organizations, in addition to those released by national governments.

GLOBAL HEALTH
SECURITY TRACKING
tracking.ghscosting.org

The Global Health Security Tracking tool is an integrated mapping and data visualization platform showing the flow of international funding for global health security from funder to recipient globally. The tool tracks funding targeted to improve health security core capacities, funds for outbreak response, and health security metrics.

GEORGETOWN OUTBREAK ACTIVITY LIBRARY
goal.ghscosting.org

The Georgetown Outbreak Activity Library (GOAL) provides rapid access and search for a comprehensive library of the activities required for response to disease outbreaks, including case studies, and information about the stakeholders and guidance mapped to each activity.

GEORGETOWN BIOSCENARIOS
bioscenarios.talusanalytics.com

Bioscenarios is a rapid visualization tool demonstrating the diversity in biological outbreak scenarios, each coded by 12 characteristics and ranked by relative likelihood to cause fatalities in humans and animals.

DELIBERATE BIOLOGICAL EVENT TOOL
dbe.talusanalytics.com

Deliberate Biological Event (DBE) Tool is an interactive teaching tool that aligns policies with the stakeholders mandated or authorized to act in responding to a deliberate biological outbreak (e.g., bioterror or state-sponsored attack), including a static visualization of how nations can request assistance for such events. Each policy is associated with when during an outbreak it is triggered and the responsibilities associated with organizations from different sectors affected by the policy in response to a DBE.

IHR COSTING TOOL
ghscosting.org

The IHR Costing Tool helps users generate and review cost estimates to support practical planning for sustainable capacity development to prevent, detect, and respond to public health threats, as defined by the International Health Regulations (IHR). This tool provides a framework to calculate costs for implementing and enhancing IHR core capacities. Costs are estimated by applying country-specific user input data to cost calculations developed using best practices for achieving the technical standards specified in the Joint External Evaluation Tool (JEE).

DECISION SUPPORT
TOOL FOR NEGLECTED TROPICAL DISEASES
integratedntd.talusanalytics.com

The Integrated NTD (Neglected Tropical Diseases) Tool is a web-based decision support tool to aid policy makers in decisions regarding the benefits of integrating malaria and schistosomiasis control programs. The user interface translates epidemiological parameters into easily interpretable recommendations.

OTHER HEALTH SECURITY DATASETS
SPAR DATA
We have collated all publicly available self-assessment measurements of International Health Regulations capacity implementation status from 2010 through 2017. These data are now organized by a comprehensive data structure with International Standard country codes and ready access to all longitudinal data in a single table.
PVS SCORE DATA
The World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) developed the Performance of Veterinary Services (PVS) Pathway as a capacity-building platform for the sustainable improvement of national Veterinary Services. This tool enables national veterinary authorities to understand their strengths and weaknesses using a globally consistent methodology based on international standards. We have translated the publicly available PVS levels of advancement (i.e., scores) into a searchable spreadsheet; scores range from 1 to 5, with 5 being the optimum designation. These data have also been incorporated into the Global Health Security Tracking tool.

DONS DATA
We have migrated several decades of WHO’s prose reports of Disease Outbreak News (DONs) into a searchable spreadsheet. These data are now organized by a comprehensive data structure for consistent naming conventions for countries, outbreaks, type of disease event, and standard outbreak measures. The structured data are available for download.
RAPID URBAN HEALTH SECURITY ASSESSMENT (RUHSA) TOOL
The RUHSA Tool is intended to be a voluntary, collaborative, and multisectoral resource for mayors and municipal public health authorities to self-assess municipal capacities to prevent, detect and rapidly respond to public health events. The tool was developed by the Center by mapping numerous health security guidance documents and frameworks and provides a holistic perspective of the state of sub-national health security capacities.
