ClimHealth, a project accredited by the Space Climate Observatory (SCO):

The ClimHealth project aims to integrate climate and environmental information from satellites into health surveillance systems to develop early warning and guide disease control. This project is realized by UMR Espace-Dev UMR Espace-Dev with participants from IRD and University of La Réunion based at SEAS-OI . It is funded by CNES and has been accredited by the Space Climate Observatory (SCO) International Initiative.

ClimHealth - Leptospirosis Yangon, an operational application in the frame of the ECOMORE 2 Project:

The ECOMORE 2 Project (ECOnomic development, ECOsystem MOdifications, and emerging infectious diseases Risk Evaluation), funded by Agence Française pour le Développement (AFD), aims at better understanding anthropogenic ecological changes responsible for the emergence of infectious diseases and to measure the health risks for local communities as a result of improvement of surveillance systems and strengthening of national and regional cooperation. ECOMORE 2 is coordinated by Institut Pasteur and is implemented in 5 countries through: the Institut Pasteur du Cambodge (IPC) in Cambodia, the Institut Pasteur du Laos (IPL) in Lao PDR, the National Health Laboratory (NHL) in Myanmar, The Reaserch Institute of Tropical Medicine (RITM) in the Philippines and the National Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology (NIHE) in Vietnam.
In Myanmar, a dedicated Work Package coordinated by the National Health Laboratory has focused on developing the response capacity of Health authorities and Health community to reduce morbidity and mortality due to Leptospirosis and so to improve health of populations most affected by flood and heavy rainfall in urban and peri-urban environment.
