It is an easy to use mobile/web application,an alert and notification platform.

A connecting platform for citizens and govt./medical authorities where citizens can

request the following on the portal with features such as :

a. Urgent Medical Help for individuals

b. Immediate fumigation for homes/neighborhoods

c. Immediate/General site inspection for breeding grounds etc.

It is a touchpoint that can help authorities narrow down probable neighborhoods having Zika outbreaks and an app that can curb and control the epidemic before all hell breaks loose using data analytics.

The platform can also be used to educate one and all about prevention and protection measures against Zika, to share it and thus, to spread not the virus but awareness.

"When all are one and one is all", Motto for BUZZER.

Do you plan to apply for USAID’s Grand Challenge for funding?

  • Yes
