The Precision Health platform is a joint effort of individuals and organizations under the umbrella of #COVIDActionCollab. This is an environmental surveillance platform that aims to promote systematic wastewater surveillance and other environmental surveillance tools for early detection and prevention of disease outbreaks by creating an early warning system.
Environmental (wastewater) surveillance is the most underutilized tool, with utilization for polio and now limited COVID surveillance. With the interest in environmental surveillance as a public health tool, ignited by the COVID pandemic, we’d like to use this momentum gained.
We are passionate about revolutionizing the public health surveillance systems in India and globally by tapping into the power of environmental surveillance - thus mainstreaming the environmental surveillance system as a public health tool.
