To achieve the goals of transparent information sharing and international collaboration on infectious disease prevention and control, Taiwan CDC has launched an English web interface for the “Taiwan National Infectious Disease Statistics System” since September 2nd, 2014. The system can be accessed at http://nidss.cdc.gov.tw/en/ or through the Taiwan CDC’s website ( http://www.cdc.gov.tw/english/index.aspx ).

This online statistics system aims to provide the general public, academic researchers, health care providers and domestic and international media with an intuitive interface to obtain the daily updated epidemiological curves or geographical distributions for approximately 60 notifiable infectious diseases. A total of 630,000 visits from 57 countries worldwide has browsed the Chinese interface of the statistics website. The number of international visits is expected to be skyrocketing after the launch of the English interface.

In addition, the system offers the trends of weekly proportion of emergency department visits and community circulating virus types and subtypes for selected infectious diseases with seasonal patterns, such as influenza and enteroviral infections.
