Andela Uganda will hold a two day public hackathon dubbed IDI-Andela Health Hackathon at the Health Innovation Conference (HIC).

The HIC takes place from March 19-20th, 2019 at the Serena hotel. Prominent speakers from NIAID, Clarke Group, CryptoSavannah, Case Hospital, Centre for Diseases Control and Prevention, USAID, and Janssen are confirmed.

The hackathon will aim at bringing together innovators and techies with health professionals to create mobile-based solutions around sustainable health.

The hackathon plays part in UAHII’s core function to improve health outcomes for people with/affected by HIV and TB. This through innovations in clinical care, capacity building, system strengthening and research, which inform policy and practice.

After the hackathon, three winning teams emerge winners — when judged based on technical and business bit. Each receives a scholarship to an exciting Health Innovations Post Graduate Program, technical mentorship from Andela Uganda, access to business mentorship and resources from Innovation Village. In addition, a cash prize, and a grant writing support from the Infectious Diseases Institute (IDI).
