About the Project

Description

Games are a powerful tool to promote awareness and behavioral changes, including public health. We’re applying behavioral economics & gamification techniques to scale epidemiological surveillance through volunteered contributions. Our aim is to promote awareness and behavioral changes needed to fight COVID-19.

This project is one of three parallel projects that make up COVIDx (https://helpwithcovid.com/projects/351-covidx-crowdsourcing-wearables-citizen-reports-testing-data-to-crush-the-covid-19-curve).

Each one could be a standalone project, but together they can crush the COVID-19 curve.
