Funding Mobile Technology for Disease Surveillance in Southern Africa

We funded a project for the Southern African Center for Infectious Disease Surveillance (SACIDS), which supports the use of mobile technology for disease surveillance and enhancing community-based disease outbreak detection.

The project is built on the belief that a community level “one health” approach will progressively contribute to disease detection followed by a rapid response at community, national, regional and eventually global levels. The goal is to eliminate or reduce the occurrence or likelihood of a pandemic.

The first edition of the TechnoHealth Surveillance Newsletter can be found at the link here.

You can also view a video about the project at the link here. Please note that only the introduction is in English.

N Square Launches its First Innocentive Challenge

Our grantee, N Square, just launched its first Innocentive Challenge. The challenge seeks solutions that detail how a highly engaged network of influencers in the arts, education, finance, media, science and technology fields can work collaboratively with nuclear disarmament, safety and security subject matter experts. The challenge is based on N Square’s belief that new forms of cross-sector collaboration become possible through the sheer ingenuity of an engaged public. This enables us to innovate our way to a world that is free of nuclear risks.
