Challenge Brief: Reach The Fifth Child With Lifesaving Vaccines

On average, one child dies every 21 seconds from a vaccine­preventable disease, totaling more than 1.5 million children every year. In fact, 1 in 5 children does not have access to vaccine initiatives. wants to reach the Fifth Child.
Introducing the FC­Connect system.
Caregivers need every available tool to make a difference in these young lives, and by combining mobile technology with intelligent vaccine guidance software, FC­Connect will provide tools to maximize use of vaccines and reach into the most remote areas.
The project aims to strategically equip builders of immunization information systems around the world with a reference implementation of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's CDSi Logic Spec. The FC­Connect system will use the reference implementation to provide recommendations and guide field medical personnel who might not be familiar with the epidemiology domain. applications will bring expert guidance to those providing health care to remote and poorly served populations.
We are looking for people who want to help us build FC­Connect for a better world.
