About ANISE

The African Network for Influenza Surveillance and Epidemiology (ANISE) was founded in 2009 to help scientists share and standardise influenza surveillance methods in Africa. ANISE encourages African countries to generate and disseminate data on the burden and epidemiology of influenza.

Members can use the Network to coordinate with one another and provide laboratory and epidemiologic support to other members.

The objectives of the ANISE Network are to:

  • Generate and disseminate data on the burden and epidemiology of influenza in Africa
  • Share and promote use of standardised surveillance methods in the region
  • Coordinate and provide laboratory and epidemiologic support for the continued surveillance of seasonal influenza and for the detection of pandemic strains

The Network is open to professionals working on influenza-related projects or research in Africa. Click here to learn more about the ANISE Network.
