Pandemic Prevention Institute

See the signal. Speed the response. Stop the outbreak.

Our Mission

The Pandemic Prevention Institute (PPI) aims to help the world detect, prevent, and mitigate pandemic threats to achieve containment as quickly as possible.

We are an independent, nimble collaborator with the global community working toward an early warning system for the world.

With a growing global network, PPI will harness data to drive decision-making that prevents pandemics. Our partnerships span public, private and academic sectors. We’re working on Covid-19 today and pandemic prevention for the future.

Together, we can create an early warning system that works for—and protects—the world.

Follow us on Twitter for updates on the field, data solutions, PPI progress reports, partner highlights, and more.
