Team Arrow KadHack 2018

Team Arrow's solution focuses on the health sector. A basic tenet of economics is that resources are limited whilst human needs are basically infinite. In a country like Nigeria, this holds especially true. In the business of health, the consequences of these limted resources often prove fatal.

That was why we decided it would be beneficial for health agencies and organizations in the country to have a solution that would guide them to how to best impact the lives of people in rural communities in the most efficient way possible. Simply said, our solution aims to help doctors, nurses and other volunteers discover the best approach to helping improve healthcare in rural communties through immunization programs, outreaches, mobile clinics and other avenues.

Our solution makes use of datasets and APIs from Grid3 Nigeria, Google, and Wikipedia, turbocharged with machine learning which allows the application to provide helpful insights into how to reach out to rural communities and those around them.
