The Global Epidemic Response of the Future
Epiverse is a global collaborative working to develop a trustworthy data analysis ecosystem dedicated to getting ahead of the next public health crisis. Infectious diseases recognize no borders – our initiative meets the challenge with a system of standardized, easily accessible epidemiological software tools in the global fight for public health.
With support from The Rockefeller Foundation and Wellcome, and together with our community of experts, Epiverse is empowering academia, governments, multilateral organizations, and others with open-source, privacy-preserving tools to derive new insights from data. A commitment to equitable, inclusive co-creation is at the heart of Epiverse’s vision to anticipate, identify, and prevent future health and social challenges.
Specifically, Epiverse awards grants to leaders in the field, like the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (along with their colleagues at MRC the Gambia) Universidad de los Andes, and Universidad Javeriana. By providing critical funding and facilitating the administration of grant resources, we work alongside these institutions as our building partners to shape the community and build the field.

A Path to Preparedness
Centered around Digital Development Principles, Epiverse is creating digital public goods, the infrastructure, and the capacity to effectively develop and deploy open-source software solutions in the regions most impacted by health inequities. Through its three key pillars, Epiverse is empowering the epidemiology community to solve real-world problems.
- Epiverse TRACE – a digital public good of interoperable software and tools that will globally transform epidemic response
- Epiverse BUILD – opportunities for inclusive, interdisciplinary co-creation and design on some of the field’s biggest challenges and inhibitors of progress
- Epiverse CONNECT – the global community sustaining the data-driven technology committed to innovation and global health equity
We need solutions built on the knowledge and capabilities of those most at-risk of bearing the burden of inequities in global health.Catalina González-Uribe, MA, MSc., Ph.D. Director of Internationalization at the Vice Presidency of Research and Creation and Associate Professor at the School of Medicine Universidad de los Andes (Uniandes)
