Countries within the Mekong Basin region face serious health challenges due to factors such as the emergence of new infectious agents, increased globalization, climate change, and growing urbanization. To effectively respond to these challenges and prevent the spread of communicable diseases, InSTEDD iLab SEA has been working closely with the Ministries of Health (MoHs) of Laos, Vietnam, Myanmar, and Cambodia as part of this project. The aim is to refine and pilot four digital disease detection solutions that were identified through the EpiHacks initiative. During the development of these solutions, the iLab will expand its existing tool functionalities and innovate new tools, which will further contribute to the strengthening of digital disease detection and participatory surveillance as they become available as open source.
