The International Pathogen Surveillance Network (IPSN)
The International Pathogen Surveillance Network (IPSN) is a global network of pathogen genomic actors, hosted by the WHO Hub for Pandemic and Epidemic Intelligence, to accelerate progress on the deployment of pathogen genomics and improve public health decision-making.
By strengthening the pathogen genomic surveillance ecosystem, the IPSN enables faster detection of new pathogens and the enhanced tracking of the spread and evolution of diseases. This in turn can drive better public health responses. The IPSN supports ongoing disease surveillance and will help detect and fully characterize new disease threats before they become epidemics or pandemics.
In collaboration with weissbunt, EYES-OPEN has partnered with the World Health Organization (WHO) to create the key visual for the International Pathogen Surveillance Network and provide support throughout its launch in May 2023 in Geneva. A wide range of media materials has been produced for this occasion, including digital assets like social media posts, website banners, and PowerPoint templates, as well as print products such as roll-ups, table runners, flyers, and posters for the events.
