South and East Asia are some of the most vulnerable regions to infectious diseases. This part of the world is also witnessing some of the fastest growing rates of mobile phone usage. In the past five years, our research team focused on conceptualizing, designing and assessing social media tools to battle infectious diseases, in particular vector borne diseases (e.g. dengue, zika) and viruses (influenza, H1N1). The presentation covers the experiences and findings from studies surrounding the research and development of interventions targeting the dengue problem in the capital city of Colombo, Sri Lanka and influenza in Singapore.
