We are excited to introduce the Norwegian Surveillance System for Communicable Diseases as our 400th profile. Established in 1975, the system relies on the reporting of infectious diseases from healthcare providers and laboratories across the country. The data collected are used to develop public health policies, monitor disease trends, and respond to outbreaks.

2022 had us busy profiling databases from around the world (currently 400), including the first ones from six countries. We made several enhancements and also lowered the “global” subscription rate to make our resource more affordable to locate databases of interest. Would you complete our 2-minute survey regarding how you could benefit from B.R.I.D.G.E.?

Starting in 1997, the Icelandic Register of Communicable Diseases includes diseases, agents causing diseases and events, immunisations, and use of antimicrobial drugs, and is intended to be of use in preventive measures and in epidemiological research. Notifiable communicable diseases which can pose a threat to public welfare are subject to registration.
