Operational Guide: The Early Warning and Response System (EWARS) for Dengue Outbreaks

World Health Organization WHO; TDR Program, (2018)

This guide is a revised edition to the previous version published in 2017. This updated publication provides programme managers with a user-friendly tool that can: (i) analyse and draw conclusions from historic dengue datasets; (ii) identify appropriate alarm indicators that can predict forthcoming outbreaks at smaller spatial scales; and (iii) use these results and analyses to build an early warning system to detect dengue outbreaks in real time and respond accordingly. This web-based tool can ensure enhanced, fast and secured communication between national and subnational levels, and standardized utilization of surveillance data.
