2018 International Congress for Infectious Diseases Hackathon
February 27 - March 1
Hacking Medicine partnered with the International Society for Infectious Diseases to host a water, sanitation, and hygiene- focused hackathon in Buenos Aires as part of the 18th International Congress for Infectious Diseases. Participants with public health backgrounds from around the world formed teams and developed solutions to address a range of issues, including identifying mosquito breeding sites in Argentinian communities, testing local water quality in schools, monitoring distribution of medical supplies during floods, and improving the quality of public health information disseminated by ProMed. Prizes were awarded by the Elsevier Foundation, ProMed, and ArcGIS.
