A new project on dengue fever forecast implemented Update 06-05-2019 02:41
On the morning of March 22, the delegation of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), and World Health Organization (WHO) was led by doctor Dinh Thanh Tung, the official in charge of health under the United Nations Development Program Head arrived at and had a working session with the provincial Center for Disease Control to carry out the project of “The dengue fever model forecast system based on satellite data” (Project D - MOSS) in Dong Nai.

The project which is implemented for three years will create favorable conditions for the government, public health agencies, and people to take appropriate actions to minimize the impacts and damage of dengue fever epidemic. The project is funded by the UK Space Agency’s International Partner Program, and it will use the earth observation technology to develop dengue fever alert tools and make assessments of the risk of contracting diseases that are transmitted through intermediate hosts in the context of climate change and land use in the future.


This is the first time a forecast system based on the earth observation has allowed decision makers to identify the areas with a high risk of diseases before outbreaks to use resources to reduce spread and increase disease control.


The project will be carried out for 3 years, from 2019 to 2021 and will go into detailed implementation in the coming June in the four provinces of Dong Nai, Hanoi, Khanh Hoa, and Dak Lak.


After that, the project effectiveness will be assessed. If the project is successful, will be replicated in other provinces all over the country.
