Browse our interactive map to track outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases around the globe.

The map uses information published by news, governments and global health organisations to plot outbreaks of vaccine-preventable disease over time, including measles, mumps, polio, rubella and whooping cough (pertussis). Originally created and published by the US-based Council on Foreign Relations in 2008, this interactive tool is widely recognised by the global health community for its role in raising awareness of the continued prevalence of easily preventable diseases.
