Integrated surveillance: Early Warning and Response System (EWARS)

The EWARS model uses historical climate and health data to predict outbreaks of climate-sensitive diseases, including dengue, cholera, and malaria. The outputs support the implementation of warning systems to detect outbreaks in real-time. A user manual and instructional videos are available with step-by-step implementation guidance.
