Announcing our Partnership with Break Dengue

We’re happy to announce our collaboration with Break Dengue for our upcoming hackathon to stop the spread of dengue.

Break Dengue will support us with their knowledge, ideas, and data about the spread of dengue that they’ve gathered over the past four years of working against this disease.

On our part, we’ll engage the data science community to work with this data to visualize the spread of dengue and to forecast future outbreaks, and provide the analysis required the put these ideas and knowledge into action.

Break Dengue is a non-profit organization that aims to connect different initiatives around the world that are addressing the issue of dengue and provide an open platform for doing so.
