Dengue fever early warning system.
UNDP Vietnam, UK Space Agency's International Partnership Programme
Dengue fever is the fastest spreading mosquito-borne viral disease in the world today, prompting the World Health Organisation (WHO) to include the virus in the world's top 10 public health threats. It costs the Health Services of low to middle-Income countries around $8 billion annually.
D-MOSS dengue fever early warning system, is the first fully integrated dengue fever early warning system to incorporate Earth Observation data and seasonal climate forecasts to predict cases of dengue fever up to six months in advance.
D-MOSS provides low to middle-income country stakeholders with a leading-edge digital tool to aid mosquito-borne disease control; the first of its kind in the world to be accessible through an internet browser.
Ongoing discussions to expand D-MOSS to Indian states, Singapore, Pakistan, The Caribbean, Central and South America, and Africa.
