Remote epidemiological monitoring: Participate in the 2nd Quarterly of the SCO France
Beyond the global health crisis it is causing, Covid-19 reminds us and proves to us how much human health is linked to the environment. Satellites are permanent watchdogs of the Earth, and are once again precious allies in understanding these links, trying to anticipate future epidemics and stop them from spreading.
To learn about solutions boosted by the Space Climate Observatory, attend its second quarterly "Epidemiological Remote Monitoring through the SCO" on Thursday, October 21, 2021.
As a preamble, the PREZODE project will be presented. This initiative of the One Planet Summit and developed within the framework of the "One Health" program wants to prevent and reduce the risks of emergence of zoonotic infectious diseases. Initiated by three French research institutes - INRAE, CIRAD and IRD - PREZODE integrates research on animal, human and environmental health and responds to the recommendations of the report on biodiversity and pandemics published by IPBES in October 2020. This presentation will be an opportunity to concretize the links with the SCO.
The SCO projects honored will be
- ClimHealth, supported by IRD, aims to develop an operational module of DHIS2, the main global health information management system, to integrate environmental and climatic data. The objective is not to predict diseases, but rather environments and times that are favorable to disease emergence.
- ArboCartoV2, supported by CNES, is an application that allows targeting places where the risk of abundance of mosquitoes, vectors of human arboviroses, is very high in order to orient vector control actions and adjust them to the most at-risk neighborhoods.
Launched in June 2021, the SCO France Quarterly is a regular meeting to animate the community and allow each project to show its progress, inspire others and create synergies. Logically, the first edition in June 2021 was built on the theme of satellite data in SCO projects.
