  • The Global Initiative on Sharing All Influenza Data (GISAID), is a global consortium of scientists who actively promote the international sharing of all influenza type virus sequences, related clinical and epidemiological data associated with human isolates, and geographic and species-specific data associated with avian and other animal isolates.GISAID is providing a publicly accessible platform including the EpiFlu database that is free of charge. The H1N1 influenza strain which caused the 2009 flu pandemic, although not an avian influenza, is explicitly included.GISAID came to life on 2006-08-24 as the Global Initiative on Sharing Avian Influenza Data by a group of leading medical researchers from around the world to improve the sharing of influenza data and was announced in a letter published in the journal Nature signed by over 70 leading scientists including seven Nobel laureates.Its users are requested to register and agree that they share their own data, credit the use of others' data, analyze findings jointly and publish results collaboratively, and maintain common access to technology derived from the data so that it can be used not only for research but for development of products such as diagnostics and vaccines. The data will be available immediately to all who sign on to use the database under the terms that they will acknowledge the source of the data and endeavor to work with those that provide the data.

  • The GISAID Initiative is a public–private partnership between the Federal Republic of Germany and the nonprofit organization Friends of GISAID e.V. that provides public access the most complete collection of genetic sequence data of influenza viruses and related clinical and epidemiological data in its EpiFlu™ database hosted by the German government. Initially spurred by the global threat posed by human infections with highly pathogenic avian influenza H5N1, GISAID introduced in 2008 a new mechanism to promote and incentivize the rapid sharing of influenza virus data, permitting free and open access to anyone who positively identifies himself or herself and agrees to respect the inherent rights of contributors. GISAID’s database access agreement ensures that contributors of genetic sequence data do not forfeit their intellectual property rights to the data.GISAID came to life on 2006-08-24 as the Global Initiative on Sharing Avian Influenza Data by a group of leading medical researchers from around the world to improve the sharing of influenza data and was announced in a letter published in the journal Nature signed by over 70 leading scientists including seven Nobel laureates.Its users are requested to register and agree that they share their own data, credit the use of others' data, analyze findings jointly and publish results collaboratively, and maintain common access to technology derived from the data so that it can be used not only for research but for development of products such as diagnostics and vaccines.

  • The GISAID Initiative is widely credited for successfully enabling the rapid sharing of influenza virus data through a unique sharing mechanism, that was recognized for its importance to global health by all G20 health ministers in 2017. The Initiative involves public–private partnerships between the nonprofit organization Freunde von GISAID e.V. and governments of the Federal Republic of Germany, the official host of the GISAID EpiFlu™ database, providing public access to the most complete collection of genetic sequence data of influenza viruses and related clinical and epidemiological data, Singapore and the United States of America. Initially spurred by the global threat posed by human infections with highly pathogenic avian influenza H5N1, GISAID introduced its novel sharing mechanism in 2008 that permits free and open access to influenza data, to anyone who positively identifies himself or herself, and agrees to respect the inherent rights of contributors.
