SORMAS deployed in multiple countries for COVID-19 in 2020

With the emergence of COVID-19, HZI rapidly developed a module for detection and control of the virus. Both the Ghana Health Service and Nigeria Centre for Disease Control immediately activated this new module in more than 400 districts already using SORMAS, as well as in ports of entry such as airports and harbors, covering a population of more than 85 million. The Nigeria Public Health Service is using SORMAS for epidemiological follow-up and containment. In Nepal, national public health authorities are preparing to deploy SORMAS in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Fiji Island has deployed SORMAS for COVID-19 along other countries. The uptake in country adoption demonstrates the importance of having flexible, responsive options to health crisis. Read more about SORMAS deployments in Nigeria and Ghana here

From Piloting to Immediate Outbreak Control

Our goal is to improve infectious disease control and management by applying control measures in a timely manner and to verify disease cases. We ensure availability of validated real time surveillance data which would in turn lower the disease burden through enabled contact tracing while monitoring of potential future cases. We offer easy-to use, multi-functional mobile health (mHealth) and electronic health (eHealth) applications which provides real-time data availability and compatibility with standard surveillance systems

SORMAS Mission
The Surveillance, Outbreak Response Management and Analysis System (SORMAS) aims to improve prevention and control of communicable diseases particularly in resource-poor settings. The system is being designed by those involved in public health surveillance and disease control. SORMAS is free of charge and adheres to highest data protection standards, good scientific practice and open access policy
