“Spread Truth, Not Disease” Hackathon, 4/17

Category : GLEPI News/Events

Description

Did you know that more than a billion people worldwide are at risk of contracting neglected tropical diseases (NTDs)? These infections can lead to disability (including blindness and elephantiasis), stigma, and even death.

NTDs are preventable and treatable, but oftentimes people are unwilling to accept treatment due to disturbing rumors or misinformation they have heard. The Task Force for Global Health is hosting a virtual hackathon, “Spreading Truth, Not Disease,” on April 17th to solve this global health communication challenge that countries face today.

Interdisciplinary teams of students will compete to win $2,000 and the opportunity to showcase their work in a virtual booth, during the annual meeting of the Coalition for Operational Research on Neglected Tropical Diseases (COR-NTD), a global meeting of researchers, program implementers and their in-country partners with the shared goal of optimizing NTD control and elimination.
