Finding Outbreaks Faster: Novel Tools for Enhancing Global Disease Surveillance; Digital Disease Detection Workshop - Santo Domingo 2014

Purpose:

The purpose of this workshop is to expose FETP residents, graduates, staff, and program directors, who are in the best position to discover and validate new disease outbreaks, to the contemporary, rapid digital disease detection (DDD) approaches and how they can stay involved in DDD efforts through TEPHINET. Bridging the gap in knowledge and access to digital disease detection information likely represents one of the best opportunities to reduce public health response times to new outbreaks of emerging diseases.
