World leaders in global health and safety

From Foundations In Emergency Preparedness

Sitata was founded by Dr. Ronald St. John, a world-renown leader in the field of public health and emergency preparedness. Ron spent more than 35 years in the world of public health, consulted for various international governments and the World Health Organization, and retired as Canada’s first Director Of Emergency Preparedness for the country. During his tenure at Health Canada, Ron led a team to create a little known program called the Global Public Health Intelligence Network (GPHIN). GPHIN revolutionized the public health sector as it was the world’s first automated, digital disease surveillance system. Not soon after its launch, GPHIN was noted for its ability to detect the emerging SARS epidemic in 2002.

To Global Leadership in Prevention And Assistance

Sitata has taken the lessons learned from GPHIN and expanded upon them. We leverage the latest computer algorithms to detect not only disease outbreaks, but also safety concerns and anything else that might disrupt someone’s travels, all at a much faster pace and broader coverage level than other sources. Our content and services are designed to keep travellers safe and healthy before, during and after each and every trip.

We’re creating the next generation of services for travel health and safety for both travellers and travel professionals. Our mission is simple: to keep your travels worry-free.
