IBM recently worked with representatives from United Nations organizations in Geneva to identify four of the world's most significant challenges related to natural disasters. We then brought together developers from some of the world's top companies to create "solution starter kits" that offer one potential solution to the problem. Now, it's your turn to take these ideas and build them into viable Call for Code submissions.

Creating open source technologies for healthcare can reduce risks of disease, create options for emergency care, improve data and resource availability, and help victims navigate the psychological support needed throughout the crisis.
