This team, based in Peshawar, was one of the winners of the 2015 Islamabad Civic Hackathon.  The project was then accelerated by Code for Pakistan’s Civic Accelerator Program. QDEWS is a timely surveillance system that can reduce epidemic outbreak detection from 2.5 weeks to 1 day. The system will alert government Health authorities and create public awareness about the disease symptoms, caution, and treatment through real-time reports from the ground.
