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.

What We Do

 

Collaborate

We drive the collaboration needed for high-quality and rapid learning on determination of cause of death with MITS by facilitating sharing and discussion of lessons learned, tools, and resources.

 

Expand

We help scale up the use of MITS globally by supporting a growing network of members to use pathology-based surveillance in various populations, geographies, and contexts.

Improve

We improve the precision of cause of death information with MITS-generated data through the continuous assessment and adaptation of procedures.
