Botswana Outbreak Alert is a distributed system for users to report incidents of disease in Botswana. The message system can be accessed primarily through SMS, though a team in Botswana has developed an Android app that will attempt to communicate with our message server. The simple message server guides users on how to submit an entry. The entry is then mapped, categorized and clustered in a web app, so it can be visualized by the public and by public health governments. The server also allows administrators to text users to send out helpful information about health outbreaks in the area.
