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.
The COVID Analysis and Mapping of Policies (AMP) site provides access to a comprehensive list of policies and plans implemented globally to address the COVID-19 pandemic. In many cases, response efforts have been led by subnational governments or private and non-profit organizations. For simple search, each policy or plan has been categorized by the type of measure, in addition to implementation date and authorizing agency. In addition, policies can be identified by legal authority and plans by type of organization. Where available, PDFs or links to the original document or notice are included.
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.
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.
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 (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.
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).
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.
