Triple Border Disease Surveillance in South America

Population movement, limited public health infrastructure, different country reporting systems, and poor environmental conditions increase incidence of certain infectious diseases across borders. Communities living in border areas are at increased vulnerability for and worse outcomes from infectious diseases such as COVID-19 and other priority pathogens.

I-TECH, as part of the Integrated Next-generation Surveillance in Global Health: Translation to Action (INSIGHT to Action) project, is implementing a cross border surveillance strengthening program  to improve the detection, monitoring, investigation, and response to public health threats in two triple border regions in South America.
