Media monitoring of HPV related articles and news

MEDISYS is a media monitoring system providing event-based surveillance to rapidly identify potential public health threats using information from media reports. The system displays articles with interest to public health (e. g. diseases, plant pests, psychoactive substances), analyses news reports and warns users with automatically generated alerts. The information processed by MEDISYS is derived from the Europe Media Monitor (EMM) developed by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) ( ECDC created three search tools for HPV that can be consulted by the large public:

  1. HPV
