Early Warning Alert and Response Network (EWARN)

EARLY WARNING ALERT AND RESPONSE NETWORK (EWARN)

It is a health information system for surveilling and monitoring epidemiological diseases. It was established in the affected areas outside the regime’s control after the health system’s collapse in the middle of 2013.

EWARN is considered the main accredited source for public health information regarding the indicators of the WHO and UNICEF. It is technically supported by the WHO, UNICEF, and CDC in the USA.
