Better Health Hackathon: #CodeForCOVID19

Virtual Hackathon


In a time of great uncertainty, disruption, and isolation, how can technology keep us connected and help the world get better, and emerge stronger, together to a brighter future?

Better solutions aren’t born in isolation but out of great collaboration. This collaboration has been the essence of all human innovation. This is why - now more than ever - we need to find ways to come together as innovators, leaders, and empathetic human beings.

It is how we will face the uncertainties of tomorrow. It is our key to shaping a healthier world.

And it is our best chance to build a better future.

At this critical juncture in the global response to the unprecedented fallout of COVID-19, HCL Technologies and Microsoft present the Better Health Hackathon: #CodeForCOVID19 engage a global community of talented, purpose-driven and passionate tech innovators and developers - harnessing their creativity, digital skills and entrepreneurial spirit to inspire solutions that address immediate concerns and long-term global challenges to better prepare for current and potential pandemic-related problems, by connecting them with industry experts, technology influencers, academic scholars and thought leaders.
