Young people from different universities, along with innovators, developers, partners and Marie Stopes Uganda will gather for a two-day hackathon dubbed #HCAHACK
It will be a collaborative event that aims to have the participants develop a mobile health app solution that promotes young people’s access to sexual and reproductive health services
The winning team will walk away with mega prizes from Vodafone in addition to 3 months incubation at the Hostalite Cyber Academy, exposure to funding from Marie Stopes Innovation fund.
“It is our duty to support, shape, encourage and help the young Innovators reach their potential.”
After two days of designing and developing, the hackathon will conclude with a pitch session, where an expert panel of judges will select the winning app prototype(s).
