a look at our work from the perspective of the movie
Contagion does an excellent job at depicting real organizations at work in containing a
pandemic. But a short movie can’t dive too deep or show all angles.

We will show you how technology is being designed and used around the world to make
a difference in public health.

Spanning remote villages and the world’s largest cities, high-tech and low-tech, routine
events and pandemics.

All the information is from real-world projects in which InSTEDD is helping NGOs, health
agencies, and governments improve their ability to improve health and safety with technology.
rural & urban

                                      In the film, the outbreak starts in an urban environment.
                                       Most of humanity lives in urban settings, however the
                                       largest interface between humans and animals (a key
                                        factor for zoonotic diseases) happens in rural areas.

Stopping Contagion At the Source

  • 1. STOPPING AT T H E S O U R C E a look at our work from the perspective of the movie
  • 2. Contagion does an excellent job at depicting real organizations at work in containing a pandemic. But a short movie can’t dive too deep or show all angles. We will show you how technology is being designed and used around the world to make a difference in public health. Spanning remote villages and the world’s largest cities, high-tech and low-tech, routine events and pandemics. All the information is from real-world projects in which InSTEDD is helping NGOs, health agencies, and governments improve their ability to improve health and safety with technology.
  • 3. rural & urban In the film, the outbreak starts in an urban environment. Most of humanity lives in urban settings, however the largest interface between humans and animals (a key factor for zoonotic diseases) happens in rural areas. GLOBAL CHALLENGES | our work Obtaining and processing information to help early detection Thousands of village health workers use and early response. GeoChat to create mobile surveillance networks covering even the most remote Lack of trained people to process areas. Many outbreaks are now information and coordinate a rapid contained locally. response. InSTEDD’s field design work and iLabs Rapid response in remote areas invent ways so people with low literacy with challenges with language, can report accurately. connectivity, and education.
  • 4. sharing information In the film, the outbreak is investigated trying to find ‘Patient X’ and understand the disease. Pen and paper are always useful, but how can investigators in the CDC and beyond actually share information with each other to accelerate the containment? GLOBAL CHALLENGES | our work Investigators need to share InSTEDD designed for the US Center information regardless of the tools for Disease Control peer to peer data they have. Even agreeing on what sharing tools that work even when data may be important takes time. internet and GPRS is not available. Governments, NGOs, hospitals, WHO, CDC, and others need to Investigations are often international. collaborate and share data to InSTEDD works globally to provide understand the outbreak. Yet each tools that help countries share one needs to control its information. disease data in secure, timely ways.
  • 5. real time investigations In the film, the information about the disease in the early stages appears quickly. Usually, finding clues and accessing helpful information for analysis takes more time. GLOBAL CHALLENGES | our work Every clue counts – pictures, InSTEDD created modern tools for the video, and location play an Android tablet to support the New York important role in helping Health Department in capturing and investigators. reporting multimedia data from the field. There is a tradeoff between timely, InSTEDD provides tools to help curate high-quality, and complete real-time streams of information, find information. Unfortunately, having outlier health events, and filter data with all 3 simultaneously isn’t possible. the aid of machine learning.
  • 6. global & local In the film, the investigation is global. The ultimate goal is to contain and slow down outbreaks at their source - locally. And no one knows better how to do that than the people who live there. GLOBAL CHALLENGES | our work Most tools are designed for InSTEDD tools are used everyday in narrow purposes, while surveillance and have been repurposed by outbreaks demand more free- the users on the go – from responding to form collaboration. floods to tracking new emerging diseases. Supporting local innovators in InSTEDD Innovation Labs are teams of designing and implementing designers, tech savvy and entrepreneurial tools that fit their context. people that invent & build the technologies their communities need.
  • 7. regional networks In the film, international agencies such as CDC and WHO play a crucial role in coordinating the investigation and response. These days, a new form of organization is emerging that can complement their function: regional networks of neighboring countries. GLOBAL CHALLENGES | our work Diseases aren’t contained by borders InSTEDD supports the Mekong Basin or boundaries. The movement of Disease Surveillance Network with mobile animals and workers is a major force tools on sentinel border sites, that help track in disease spread. outbreaks as they cross borders. Investigators in neighboring countries InSTEDD technologies work internationally need to build trust before events allowing agencies to share appropriate happen. The politics of each information, securely, and 24x7. Users outbreak are different and can even include Cambodia, China, Lao PDR, lead to threatened national security. Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam.
  • 8. agile technology design In the film, technologies are used that provide an instant display and understanding of data, yet the development of information sharing technology is not highlighted. What happens when agencies with disparate systems need to work together? GLOBAL CHALLENGES | our work Accurately predicting the quality, InSTEDD’s approach is centered on working closely with users, listening and iterating the sources and formats of relevant process. We build and integrate custom systems information. when requested and provide the InSTEDD platform as free and open source. Lack of widely implemented, supported and updated standards. As the 2009 H1N1 outbreak developed, InSTEDD provided WHO with geoclustering tools Adapting technologies to the users that allowed them to compare reported vs. rather than the other way around. confirmed case spread based on their internal systems.
  • 9. information flow The film shows how easily modern society can be disrupted. Helping people get the information they need to help themselves is not done enough, even though the technology to do so already exists. The World Disaster Report confirms that “Disaster-affected people need information as much as water, food, medicine, or shelter. Information can save lives, livelihoods and resources.” GLOBAL CHALLENGES | our work Supply chains, transportation systems, and other infrastructures InSTEDD provided AlertNet with the are fragile. technology to send SMSs with aid information to tens of thousands of Lack of information amplifies the survivors of the Haiti earthquake. 85% of deaths and suffering of any event. recipients acted differently as a result. Mobiles are an not used enough to InSTEDD provided the American Red provide personally relevant Cross with tools that save key members information to those threatened by hours in the activation of community the event. volunteers during times of crises.
  • 10. official & crowdsourced data In the film, “Nothing spreads like fear”. In our world information flows rapidly via mobiles and computers. This information multiplies and replicates through tools like Twitter and Facebook. But is this viral information flow being harnessed for good? GLOBAL CHALLENGES | our work Reliability and accuracy social InSTEDD’s TaskMeUp and Riff tools allow networks/media are questionable. teams to sift through live streams of information like tweets, news, blogs and The truth itself may be unverified, SMS – combining crowd, expert, and complex, and open. Raw data is algorithm-sourced data. typically not available or trustworthy. Simple mobile tools from InSTEDD speed up Response agencies often are not the validation of what’s really happening and social-media savvy, and their educate health workers and reporters on messages are easily overrun. what to look for.
  • 11. At InSTEDD, we envision a world where communities everywhere design and use technology for their health, safety and development. We strive to achieve this vision through 4 key areas: Building Capacity Collaborating with End Users within communities to foster through a bottom up design a local culture of innovation and development process Creating Technologies Ensuring Usefulness and Impact for social good collaboration through research and evaluation
