DIBRUGARH, Aug 6: 
The ICMR-RMRC, Dibrugarh, launched a unique and ambitious FoodNet dashboard and website on Wednesday in connection with a taskforce project on surveillance of foodborne pathogens from north-east India.
This dynamic dashboard will help in the generation of real time data on diarrheal diseases and outbreaks of foodborne illnesses which would help program planners to implement evidence-based intervention at the earliest.
It would also help in better understanding the biology and behaviour around foodborne disease occurrence through an innovative mixed method research approach.
The experience from it will serve as the cornerstone for further scaling up this project on a pan-India basis. This initiative is a first-of-its-kind project in India, which will strengthen the foodborne pathogen survey & bio-medical research in the country.
The project is being run collaboratively by ICMR, RMRC, NE Region, Dibrugarh, ICMR, New Delhi, NICED & C-DAC Kolkata along with the active participation of state health authorities (Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Tripura & Sikkim), academic institutions including regional medical colleges & community-based organisations as stakeholders of this project.
