InfoDengue is an open system which is free for all states and municipalities that wish to participate. It is maintained by mathematicians and statisticians at FGV´s School of Applied Mathematics (EMAp) and the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (Fiocruz).

After providing weekly analysis of the risk of dengue in the state of Rio de Janeiro for the past year, the InfoDengue System, a project of FGV 's School of Applied Mathematics, added another Brazilian State, Paraná, to the study.

Currently, there are 474 municipalities in total that can monitor the situation of the disease in their city on a weekly basis. The system classifies each week into four alert levels on a scale that starts at green and ends at red. In addition to the information offered to the public on the website, analytical reports are sent to states and municipalities to help them with their disease control strategies.

The Project Coordinator Codeço Flávio Coelho, a Professor at EMAp, has just published an article in the Lancet Infectious Diseases journal on the state of data accessibility for monitoring and epidemiological control in Brazil. It is considered the second most important publication on communicable diseases and is of high-impact.
