Wellcome Trust Press Release features FloDisMod

The FloDisMod project is one of the projects funded by the Wellcome Trust under Early warning systems for other types of disease transmission category.

Below is the snapshot of our project in the press.

FloDisMod – framework for flood and disease modelling

Led by researchers at the University of Texas, USA, this open-source software will model floods and storm surges – particularly those occurring in the Southern Texas border region – to better understand their impact on mosquito habitat, disease reporting, social vulnerability and health risks. The team will develop an early warning system for the Texas-Mexico border region, but it will be extended to soil-borne diseases as well as other geographies.
