Community-Based Disease Outbreak Detection and Response in Eastern and Southern Africa (DODRES)

Project Details

About

Launched in 2015, Community-Based Disease Outbreak Detection and Response in Eastern and Southern Africa (DODRES) addresses the challenges of delayed feedback in the traditional human and animal health infectious disease surveillance systems. DODRES originated from EpiHack Tanzania.

Impact

Through the establishment of AfyaData, a two-way communication mechanism for health systems and community members to share timely health surveillance data, pastoralist Masai communities in the border regions of Kenya and Tanzania can use the AfyaData mobile tool to report health events from their community to district-level surveillance systems.
