200 global health innovators, Zika experts from Latin America and the Caribbean, key stakeholders (from the White House, CDC, USAID, Grand Challenges Canada and many others) joined forces to innovate for Zika. 

“The hack-a-thon experience was so meaningful,” said Yasmin Baig, a public health graduate student and member of one the winning teams. “It is such a great lesson in how people from different backgrounds and with different interests can come together to develop solutions that can make a big impact.”
