Thailand’s Disease Detectives

BBC World Hacks posted a video and podcast highlighting the efforts of the Participatory One Health Disease Detection project (PODD) in Thailand, which was supported by SGTF.

The video and podcast explore how new innovations in Thailand are helping local communities prevent large scale epidemics.

To date, there are up to 3,000 trained PODD volunteers helping to identify dangerous outbreaks and contain them before they spread.
