Basic Information

Overview

FluTracking is an online health surveillance system to detect epidemics of influenza in Australia. It is quick (10 - 15 seconds per week) response to an email about the symptoms any household members have had in the previous week. It helps identify ways to detect both seasonal and pandemic influenza and other diseases to better protect the community from epidemics.
