D-Moss: Dengue forecasting MOdel Satellite-based System for Vietnam

Dengue is the fastest-growing mosquito-borne viral infection in the world today. It is present in over 150 countries, and approximately 40 percent of the world’s population now live in countries where dengue is a daily risk.

The D‐MOSS project is developing a dengue fever early warning system that generates several months advance warning of likely dengue outbreaks utilising Earth Observation (EO). An advance warning on dengue risk, could help public health officials plan cost‐effective actions in advance and move away from a reactive system where disease control interventions occur after a dengue outbreak occurs.
