About the MITS Surveillance Alliance


The MITS Surveillance Alliance (MITS Alliance) is a leading coalition focused on establishing MITS as a standard approach to mortality surveillance for all populations. Our goal is to scale up 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.

Our network includes surveillance site partner organizations implementing and using pathology-based surveillance systems, as well as partner institutions working and interested in establishing MITS as a standard mortality surveillance approach.

The MITS Surveillance Alliance is sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

What We Offer

The MITS Alliance convenes experts to standardize MITS procedures and share best practices and lessons learned.

To help facilitate the use of MITS, we provide training, tools, materials, and expertise to support the use and implementation of pathology-based surveillance. Visit our Resource Center page to learn more.
