This system monitors internet media, such as news wires and websites, in nine languages in order to help detect and report potential disease outbreaks or other health threats around the world.[1]

Management[edit]

GPHIN is managed by Health Canada's Centre for Emergency Preparedness and Response (CEPR) and it is a subscription-based service.
