Started in 2015, Guardians of Health is a mobile application for everyday disease surveillance in Brazil. Guardians of Health was created for daily surveillance and later adapted for users to report symptoms during mass gatherings to identify outbreaks in real time. The app also provides helpful health tips and easy location of health care clinics and pharmacies.
Guardians of Health was used during the 2016 Rio Olympics and Paralympics in Brazil. The project introduced a new disease surveillance strategy and a novel approach in Brazil, applying a mobile technology tool to report diseases, bringing together the government, private, and non-governmental sectors in close, inclusive partnership.
