The Stairway to Excellence

EYWA (EarlY WArning System for Mosquito borne diseases) a prototype system addressing the critical public health need for prevention and protection against the Mosquito-Borne Diseases (MBDs), lies under the umbrella of EuroGEO Action Group "Earth Observation for Epidemics of Vector-borne Diseases - EO4EViDence".

NOA/ BEYOND is coordinating the EuroGEO Action Group "Earth Observation for Epidemics of Vector-borne Diseases" which is linked to the GEO 2017-2019 Work Programme, especially with the Community Activities: Earth Observations for Health (EO4HEALTH) which includes vector borne infectious diseases, Copernicus Atmospheric Monitoring Service (CAMS) and Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S).

This action group pursues to collaborate with the e-shape project and specifically with Showcase 6 [Disasters] and HSAQ Pilot which aims to enhance urban resilience through timely and informed decision-making with respect to air quality and its relevance to health and urban planning by creating a service combining EO platforms and air quality, health, socioeconomic and other data with an emphasis on co-designing a service with competent stakeholders and potential end-users.

The EYWA consortium cordially invites you to participate in the virtual workshop for "Early Warning for Epidemics", which will take place in April 14th, 2021 as a continuation of the first webinars hosted on June 9th & 14th 2020. 

This workshop aims to reach members of the Mosquito-Borne Diseases and Earth Observation related communities, Public Health authorities and decision makers to showcase EYWA, its demonstrated impacts and proven use of results through selected use cases. The vision is to contribute to the process towards setting a European and even global standard for early warning and decision support to help reduce MBD infections and prevent outbreaks along with the enduring challenges posed to the European national public health authorities in terms of VBD prevention and control.
