Dengue early warning in a local community

To manage the growing burden of dengue, many actors have to interact and the awareness among citizens has to increase. The purpose of this project is to strengthen the organizational infrastructure of Yogyakarta city to address this issue.

The goal is to introduce a new decision support system that makes it possible to deliver dengue forecasts, a system that requires collaboration between health care, meteorological offices, health offices, schools and civic programs.

The project will support the establishment of clear roles, responsibilities, coordination of actions and communication channels based on existing efforts, to create a sustainable collaboration around these issues.
