Welcome to the Dengue Forecasting Project.
Several departments in the U.S. Federal Government (Department of Health and Human Services
, Department of Defense
, Department of Commerce
, and the Department of Homeland Security
) have joined together, with the support of the Pandemic Prediction and Forecasting Science and Technology Interagency Working Group under the National Science and Technology Council
, to design an infectious disease forecasting project with the aim of galvanizing efforts to predict epidemics of dengue.
This interagency project will assess forecasts using historical data from Iquitos, Peru and San Juan, Puerto Rico. On this webpage you can find the
evaluation criteria, and a
detailed description of the project.
dengue is available from the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Any updates will be posted here and on the the NOAA Dengue Forecasting Page where these materials are also available. For submissions or questions about the project contact
