Luis: Great idea, the global summary report.
It would be good to keep a few parameters in mind:
Unless there are situations of urgency (think Ebola), epidemiologists
usually report at weekly intervals. Ideally, the reporting intervals
should be configurable, but weekly is a good default :-).
The next determinant is sex (not: gender): male or female.
What is also standard, is reporting by age groups. good defaults (which
should be editable) are:
0-4, 5-14, 15-24, 25-44, 45-64, ≥65 years

It should then be possible to perform a facetted search by:

  reporting period OR periods
AND sex OR sexes
AND age group OR age groups
AND ( morbidity [i.e. disease OR diseases]
    OR mortality [i.e. cause OR causes of death] )

This will cover a lot of things, indeed.
Thanks a lot!
