Disease Outbreak News

The WHO Disease Outbreak News provides public information about officially confirmed outbreaks of international importance. Disease Outbreak News is one of the most frequently accessed web pages on the WHO web site.

Weekly Epidemiological Record

The Weekly Epidemiological Record (WER) is published in a bilingual French/English edition and issued in print and electronically. It covers epidemiological information on cases and outbreaks of diseases under the International Health Regulations (yellow fever, plague, cholera) and also on other communicable diseases of public health importance. An Outbreak News section has been added to the WER, mirroring the Disease Outbreak News web page.
