Mosquito Alert brings citizens, scientists and managers of public health
together to fight disease-carrying mosquitoes. The mobile app investigates,
monitors and controls mosquitoes by connecting stakeholders. Engaged
users send photos of mosquitoes or bites via smartphones, the app
AI and experts identify the mosquito and, if invasive, partners eliminate
it. Mosquito Alert offers an adaptable solution, producing interoperable
datasets and tools in several languages, and communication campaigns.
Real-time data allows new sightings to be quickly identified, for evidence-
based decisions by health authorities in case of disease outbreak.
