Are you an entomologist, vector control technician, or organization interested in vector surveillance? If so, this app can save critical time in the field, improve data quality, and standardize data for better operational decision-making.
Features of the Epi Info™ Vector Surveillance app include:
• Data entry modules for: 1) trapping, 2) household surveys, 3) bottle/tube bioassays, 4) cone bioassays and 5) vector control activities
• Automatic calculation of important indices such as container index, Breteau index and trap density
• Automatic capture of GPS coordinates, accuracy, elevation, dates and times
• A barcode-based indexing system for sampling locations
• Multiple languages (English, Spanish, French, Portuguese)
• Instruction manuals and email support
• Collaborative data collection with real-time or near real-time analysis (depending on your connectivity status)
• Store your data on your device or sync to your organization's preferred cloud service
The Epi Info™ Vector Surveillance app was designed for surveillance of all types of mosquito vectors: it facilitates collection of data on Aedes aegypti (the mosquito that transmits Zika, dengue, yellow fever, and chikungunya viruses); Culex mosquitoes (which transmit Filariasis and West Nile Virus), and Anopheles mosquitoes (which transmit malaria).
Once entomologists and vector surveillance techs enter surveillance data into the app, the data are uploaded to the Cloud, where they are then sent to an analysis dashboard. The dashboard automatically generates summaries, surveillance maps, visualizations and analysis of entomological indicators so decision-makers can quickly and in near real-time review their data and plan their appropriate responses about when, where, and how to begin vector control measures. By automating the analysis and display, users can focus on the more important issue of focusing on determining the right control method at the right place and time for maximum public health impact.
