About The Alliance
With more accurate data about causes of death, governments and health institutions can better plan and prioritize efforts to improve health outcomes.
A relatively simple technique called Minimally Invasive Tissue Sampling, or MITS, can help provide important data about potential causes of death, similar to the information obtained with a complete autopsy.
The MITS Surveillance Alliance aims to improve cause of death ascertainment through the expansion of the use of MITS globally. We facilitate the use of MITS by interested institutions and researchers and help grow the network of partners using pathology-based surveillance in various populations, geographies, and contexts.
In May 2019, we held our 2019 annual meeting in Seattle, Washington, USA.
