Thanks for participating in our hackathon! We are very excited to work with you.
All hackathon participants must work on a hack related to our challenge topic. Participants are encouraged to work in teams of 3 - 6. We have agreed to evaluate each project as a candidate for continued development, and may build upon hacks after the conclusion of the hackathon. Promising projects will be pitched for further development for Doctors Without Borders' A Fair Shot Campaign: http://afairshot.org, encouraging Pfizer & GSK to lower the price of the pneumonia vaccine.
On Sunday afternoon, each team will have 5 miuntes to present/demo your project, followed by 3 minutes of Q&A.
By participating, you understand that MSF-USA does not endorse hacking or any other illegal activities. As such, the “Hackathon” is an event designed to create a legal tool that uses publicly available information for advocacy purposes, and in compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
