WHO launches International Pathogen Surveillance Network

The International Pathogen Surveillance Network (IPSN) is a global network of pathogen genomic actors, hosted by the WHO Hub for Pandemic and Epidemic Intelligence, to accelerate progress on the deployment of pathogen genomics and improve public health decision-making.

By strengthening the pathogen genomic surveillance ecosystem, the IPSN enables faster detection of new pathogens and the enhanced tracking of the spread and evolution of diseases. This in turn can drive better public health responses. The IPSN supports ongoing disease surveillance and will help detect and fully characterize new disease threats be


The establishment of the IPSN has been supported by German government funding to the WHO Pandemic Hub.

We are primarily funded by readers. Please subscribe and donate to support us!
