Equine disease outbreak information, from around the world, has been obtained and collated by the International Collating Centre (ICC)
for over 30 years and is generously supported by the International Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association
National and international equine disease outbreaks are reported on an almost daily basis, through e-mail alerts sent to subscribers.

A quarterly summary report is also produced and emailed to subscribers four times a year and available in the resources and archive section of this site.
Outbreak information is obtained from multiple sources and these mainly include country based infectious disease reporting systems, such as
the USA’s Equine Disease Communication Centre (EDCC
) and France’s Réseau D’épidémio-Surveillance En Pathologie Équine (RESPE
Reported outbreaks are predominately made up of at least one case that has had the diagnosis confirmed through laboratory testing.
Outbreaks may be reported to the disease reporting sources by the testing diagnostic laboratory or by vets voluntarily reporting outbreaks.
This interactive website was designed in partnership with jDATA (Pty) Ltd
enables analysis of all international infectious disease outbreaks reported through the ICC. This website was launched in August 2019
and outbreak data for all of 2019 so far is available through this platform and will be maintained going forward. Through the ICC
and this new interactive reporting system, infectious disease outbreak information is shared with stakeholders throughout the world.
This should ensure people can be aware and up to date and provides a great communication network.
