A shared challenge
We are building the ultimate dengue tracking system – and we need your help
You can help us to reduce the impact of dengue fever by playing your part in a global effort to map the disease.
Big data can solve big public health challenges
The challenge of mapping dengue is immense but digital technology – and a little help from you – will be a game-changer. We are working with HealthMap to accurately predict dengue fever cases. This approach is already yielding results. The more data we can collect, the more accurate the system will be.
“We now have access to more data than ever before... Transforming today’s many diverse data sources into meaningful information and knowledge will give public health officials and the public a complete picture of the current state of dengue activity.”
- Dr. Mauricio Santillana from the HealthMap team at Boston Children’s Hospital
This is where you come in
Our Dengue Track initiative will translate big data into meaningful and actionable information. This online interactive tool centralizes information about dengue outbreaks from a range of sources, adds data from social media channels, and alerts people when they may be at risk of dengue.
