[Map Interactive] Global Vaccine-Preventable Diseases Outbreaks

[Map Interactive] Global Vaccine-Preventable Diseases Outbreaks | mHealth: Patient Centered Care-Clinical Tools-Targeting Chronic Diseases | Scoop.it
The Global Health Program at the Council on Foreign Relations has been tracking news reports since 2008 to produce an interactive map that plots global outbreaks of diseases that are easily prevented by inexpensive and effective vaccines.
ET Russell's insight:

MEDICAL: plots global outbreaks of measles, mumps, whooping cough, polio, rubella, and other diseases easily preventable by inexpensive and effective vaccines. Global Health Program - Council on Foreign Relations has been tracking 2008.


EDUCATORS: Students can move and play with the chart (years, type of outbreak, location). Could be used as an activity for learning objectives about data collection.
