**Esri Hackathon Challenge: Use Mapping Technology, Dev Tools & Data to Take Action against Malaria**

Background:
Do you want to help make the world a better and healthier place? Esri and the UN Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign are teaming up to encourage you to peruse a hack that focuses on using Esri mapping technology to take action against malaria. Every two minutes, a child dies from malaria – a completely preventable and treatable disease. Build a hack to help to help protect families.

Problem:
Consider how you could use maps in the field to implement vital planning activities such as distributing mosquito nets, spraying with insecticide, distributing vaccinations, and conducting surveys. Maps are critical for planning and implementing these activates for communities and health workers. For example, being able to access historic information on whether a household has received an insecticide treated net and update that record once a net has been distributed, would hugely improve the quality of data collected by workers and would allow for easy mapping and analyses.
