About the Hackathon 

The Pandemic Response Hackathon is a virtual hackathon aimed at better understanding and mitigating the spread of COVID-19 and future pandemics. The goal is to bring public health professionals alongside the technology community’s talent to contribute to the world’s response to the pandemic. Hackathon projects will be formulated and judged by an interdisciplinary panel of public health, health IT, and policy experts.

The organizers were inspired to launch this hackathon as a result of feedback from Don Berwick and the National Academies Committee on Emerging Infectious Diseases. Currently, they have approx. 420 registrants signed up, with 22 having already created a profile in the hackathon platform page (just launched this morning).
