WHO Standardized Outbreak Templates

One of the main advantages of Go.Data use for outbreak response is the ability to embed validated standards when performing case investigation, contact listing and contact tracing across disease types. This includes alignment with published standards and protocols by WHO technical teams when specifying variables and formats for data collection, such as the WHO Outbreak Toolkit.

To facilitate such standards, Go.Data contains outbreak templates for common diseases. Using an outbreak template, you can quickly activate an outbreak in your Go.Data interface, with the relevant outbreak details and case investigation form structure already complete.

To see more information on how to set up and use Outbreak Templates, please visit the Go.Data User Guide.

To access installation files to begin collecting data for any of the below diseases, you can contact godata@who.int.
