Welcome to CORDS

front-pic2Connecting Organizations for Regional Disease Surveillance (CORDS) is a unique, international non-governmental organization building information exchange among disease surveillance networks in different areas of the world. CORDS is a network of networks.

CORDS promotes global exchanges of best practices, surveillance tools and strategies, training courses, innovations, successful operating procedures, case studies and other technical data.

CORDS will speed the development, capabilities and sustainability of all its network members to improve global surveillance, to detect disease outbreaks early and mitigate their global impact.

CORDS has six founding regional disease surveillance networks, with plans to expand.

CORDS complements the work of the leading global human, animal and food health organizations and is committed to promote the One Health approach.
