The Sustainable Development Goals aim to end Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) and water-borne diseases by 2030. Yet climate change is altering their spread and intensity. Because they mostly affect disadvantaged communities in tropical and sub-tropical areas where health systems are often weak, outbreaks are frequently detected late. 

The Global Health Hub Germany Hub Community on “Neglected Tropical Diseases – Outbreak, Warning and Response” and the WHO Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (WHO-TDR) have worked on improving the Early Warning and Response System (EWARS). EWARS uses digital surveillance systems and weather information to predict imminent disease outbreaks and improves collaboration among stakeholders.
