Innovative Dengue Track initiative turns big data into actionable information

People from all over the world now have the chance to report cases of the disease in their area and get tailored advice on how to avoid infection. Dengue Track is a novel approach to disease mapping which could also be used to tracking Zika virus or Malaria.

Through a user-friendly online chat system, the tool will build a crowdsourced map of dengue outbreak. Users – known as Dengue Trackers – can access free toolkits to help them reduce their risk of dengue fever while providing details of outbreaks.
