The Seasonal Influenza Disease Burden Estimator
Seasonal influenza is a significant cause of global illness and death.
The Seasonal Influenza Disease Burden Estimator helps countries better understand their seasonal influenza burden, even if national surveillance data are limited. Using a multiplier-based approach, the tool estimates influenza cases and/or deaths by season for age groups across a country.
Users can print or email these estimates.
The Seasonal Influenza Disease Burden Estimator was developed by the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security at the Bloomberg School of Public Health, in partnership with the World Health Organization.
