HEALTHmap: Mapping Diseases Around the World

HEALTHmap is a neat tool for following news about diseases all over the world.

The mash-up gathers developments and news from the World Health Organization, Google News, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, and the International Society for Infectious Diseases. The variety of news sources allows for a fairly equal distribution of first, second, and third world events dealing with disease and health issues.

Various layers of disease news can be toggled on or off. Countries or regions can be zoomed in on, also.

For those who are interested in medical geography or just like mash-ups this is one worth checking out.
