Hacking Covid-19 Africa

Startups, associations, specialists and experts, students and even ordinary citizens can participate in Hacking Covid-19 Africa to prepare for the post-crisis period.

HACKING COVID-19 AFRICA

The severity of the health, economic and social crises resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic poses multidimensional and complex challenges to the African continent. From medical prevention to access to care, as well as all everyday activities — schools, businesses, administration…— life in the different African countries has experienced a blow that is driving us to look for a new equilibrium, in order to be more resilient, inclusive and sustainable.

While governments have rallied to respond to current emergencies, we believe in collective intelligence to build the Africa of tomorrow. Mobilizing all of our human resources is becoming imperative. Startups, associations, specialists and experts, students and even ordinary citizens can participate in Hacking Covid-19 Africa to address issues relevant to coping with the current emergency and preparing for the post-crisis period. 

WHAT IS HACKING COVID19-Africa ?

 
Hacking Covid-19 Africa is an online event where project leaders and participants from all areas work as a team, to build solutions that respond to the challenges posed by the health, social and economic crises related to Covid-19 on the continent.

The objective of this event is to give everyone the opportunity to put their skills to use for the common good, and to identify solutions that can be rapidly implemented for the future of post-crisis Africa.
