Advances in data science and medical research mean that our ability to combat epidemics, chronic diseases, natural disasters, and humanitarian crises has never been stronger. In response, Imperial College London and Community Jameel have founded J-IDEA, the Abdul Latif Jameel Institute for Disease and Emergency Analytics.
J-IDEA brings together the world’s foremost epidemiologists, biostatisticians, medics, data scientists, and aid workers. They intervene rapidly and to help those affected by the healthcare crisis. This means not only tackling events swiftly when they arise but predicting and preventing them through global collaboration.
