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.
