Welcome to the Atlas website

The Atlas of Human Infectious Diseases website is complementary to the book edition of the Atlas (Wiley-Blackwell) that was released in early 2012. The Atlas website provides updates to the maps presented in the book edition. The website is open access and anything presented here can be shared freely. 

The Atlas of Human Infectious Diseases provides a practical and visual overview of the current distribution and determinants of major infectious diseases of humans. The maps are accompanied by a concise summary of key information on the infectious agent and its clinical and epidemiological characteristics. With each map we provide useful links where more information is provided.

As the world is continuously changing, including where infectious diseases occur, we appreciate your comments and reviews on our maps and fact sheets. This will help us to improve the information we provide. Please use the comments section that accompanies each map for this purpose.
