Kidenga – UA's mosquito disease app

Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health
August 28, 2017

They're baaaack! Love the outdoors but hate mosquitoes? Do you travel a lot or know someone that does?

Mosquitoes can spread serious diseases to people. You can help stop mosquitoes from breeding around your home and be a part of a disease detection revolution.

Download the free Kidenga app to learn how.

This app was developed in partnership with the UA Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health under Dr. Kacey Ernst, with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Skoll Global Threats Foundation to crowd-source disease surveillance for Zika, dengue and chikungunya viruses in Florida, Texas, Arizona and California, and help people learn about mosquitoes and the diseases they carry. It tracks symptoms reported by the community to help detect and prevent outbreaks of mosquito-borne illnesses. It is 100% confidential! 

Please take a couple of minutes to download, report on your health and leave a review. Download the free Kidenga mobile app at
