InfluenzaNet is a system to monitor the activity of influenza-like-illness (ILI) with the aid of volunteers via the internet. It has been operational in The Netherlands and Belgium (since 2003), Portugal (since 2005) and Italy (since 2008), and the current objective is to implement InfluenzaNet in more European countries.

In contrast with the traditional system of sentinel networks of mainly primary care physicians coordinated by the European Influenza Surveillance Scheme (EISS), InfluenzaNet obtains its data directly from the population. This creates a fast and flexible monitoring system whose uniformity allows for direct comparison of ILI rates between countries.

Any resident of a country where InfluenzaNet is implemented can participate by completing an online application form, which contains various medical, geographic and behavioural questions. Participants are reminded weekly to report any symptoms they have experienced since their last visit. The incidence of ILI is determined on the basis of a uniform case definition.

Riapre la raccolta dati di Influweb

Vi diamo il bentornato per la prima settimana della raccolta dati per la stagione 2019-2020. 

Desideriamo innanzitutto ringraziare tutti i nostri partecipanti che anche quest'anno ci sosterranno e aiuteranno a raccogliere dati per la stagione influenzale 2019-2020.

L’attività influenzale è ancora ai livelli di base, con un valore appena superiore all'uno per mille in tutte le regioni. Alla pagina di Flunews nelle prossime settimane potrete trovare tutti i dettagli della sorveglianza integrata dell'influenza in Italia.

Sulle nostre pagine Facebook e Twitter come sempre potrete trovare tutti gli aggiornamenti sulle nostre attività. Per qualunque problema, tecnico e non, continuate pure a scriverci al nostro indirizzo:
