SORMAS Mission
The Surveillance, Outbreak Response Management and Analysis System (SORMAS) aims to improve prevention and control of communicable diseases particularly in resource-poor settings. The system is being designed by those involved in public health surveillance and disease control. SORMAS is free of charge and adheres to highest data protection standards, good scientific practice and open access policy


Our goal is to improve infectious disease control and management by applying control measures in a timely manner and to verify disease cases. We ensure availability of validated real time surveillance data which would in turn lower the disease burden through enabled contact tracing while monitoring of potential future cases. We offer easy-to use, multi-functional mobile health (mHealth) and electronic health (eHealth) applications which provides real-time data availability and compatibility with standard surveillance systems
