IDMO – Infectious Disease Monitoring System

Current concerns about the spread of infectious diseases, especially unexpected emerging infections with pandemic potential, have renewed focus on the critical importance of global early warning and rapid response systems. Although considerable progress has been made, many gaps remain, such as global reporting and improved coordination and sharing of information between countries.

IDMO is a global infectious disease tracking system that gathers and consolidates information from various sources, enabling for a faster response to outbreak events worldwide. The IDMO-database now contains 1 year of outbreak data and is currently the most comprehensive publicly available dataset of structured and curated outbreak information. 

IDMO can accept aggregated data from local Integrated Disease Surveillance and Response (IDSR) systems such as DHIS2.

IDMO is not just limited to the collection of epidemiological data, it also enables sharing of genomic sequences and lab findings, further promoting international exchange of essential information to improve public health responses and knowledge about infectious diseases.

How does this program help?
Open data and sharing of data is key to solving cross-border health issues, and we want to facilitate this global exchange by raising awareness and ultimately helping to mitigate global health threats.

How to access?
IDMO aggregated data is publicly accessible through the Dashboard and Data-explorer. CDCs, hospitals, clinics and labs can apply for full system access, with the option of integrating current surveillance systems. Researchers can apply for API access to consult aggregated data for automated processing and analysis.


IDMO is updated around the clock, 7 days per week. It provides non-stop curated information about outbreaks worldwide.
