PREDICT featured in the New York Times!

The PREDICT project was featured in the New York Times yesterday (HALI is the implementing partner of PREDICT in Tanzania).  The article “Outbreaks: A Tool to Track Animal Diseases May Help to Protect Humans,” highlights PREDICT’s partnership with HealthMap, an online mapping resource that displays disease events in near real-time, including reports generated by the HALI team from their field office in Iringa, Tanzania.  HealthMap is monitoring “data from 50,000 Web sites with many types of information, including World Health Organization alerts, online discussions by experts, wildlife trade reports and local news.”
