Mosquito population modelling for early warning system and rapid health authority response (MEWAR)

The MEWAR is a new trans-interdisciplinary project which seeks to bring together digital public health, computer sciences, urban water/waste sanitation treatment technologies, meteorology and climate modelling to one arena in order to evaluate the impacts of broader climatic and environmental changes on breeding habitats for mosquito-borne arboviruses in Northeast Brazil. This project is an international consortium led by renowned academics from Brazil, Turkey and United Kingdom; the research situates itself in two major cities that were hit hard by the Zika Virus epidemic in 2016, Recife (Pernambuco) and Campina Grande (Paraiba).
