InfluenzaNet is a system to monitor the activity of influenza-like-illness (ILI) with the aid of volunteers via the internet. It has been operational in The Netherlands and Belgium (since 2003), Portugal (since 2005) and Italy (since 2008), and the current objective is to implement InfluenzaNet in more European countries.

In contrast with the traditional system of sentinel networks of mainly primary care physicians coordinated by the European Influenza Surveillance Scheme (EISS), InfluenzaNet obtains its data directly from the population. This creates a fast and flexible monitoring system whose uniformity allows for direct comparison of ILI rates between countries.

Any resident of a country where InfluenzaNet is implemented can participate by completing an online application form, which contains various medical, geographic and behavioural questions. Participants are reminded weekly to report any symptoms they have experienced since their last visit. The incidence of ILI is determined on the basis of a uniform case definition.

Bonne année

Selon le dernier rapport de Sentinelle (semaine du 24 au 30 décembre), la grippe n’est toujours pas endémique dans notre pays. On retrouve seulement une incidence de 32 consultations dues à une affection grippale pour 100'000 habitants

C'est les régions du Tessin, des Grisons et de la Suisse Centrale qui sont le plus touché par la grippe sans être toutefois endémique. A savoir, ce sont principalement les enfants en bas âge ( 0-4 ans) qui ont consulté dans le contexte d'un état grippal. 

Restez vigilants!
