Introducing the first ever national healthcare hackathon in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Destination Health 2071 is a 56-hour hacking contest, a weekend to brainstorm, build, challenge and innovate solutions with hundreds of like-minded
thinkers and doers in the field of healthcare with passionate individuals from various other domains such as engineering, design,
development, business, media & psychology to disrupt healthcare.
This healthfest aims to increase innovation in healthcare using collaborative, bottom-up approach with
healthcare professionals & non-healthcare professionals. Real problems. Real solutions. It also aims to present futuristic solutions to the pressing healthcare issues by bringing bright minds, great ideas and game-changers together in a stimulating environment.
Destination Health 2071 aligns with AREA 2071’s vision of bringing together the world’s greatest minds for the benefit of future generations, directing changes towards addressing human needs. AREA 2071 is designed to help these people thrive – both next generation of Emirati innovators and the best talent across the world.
By the year 2071, the UAE will be the world’s leading nation. This will be achieved through the implementation of a series of bold initiatives across a variety of industries, mandated by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, in the UAE Centennial Plan.
AREA 2071 is a physical manifestation of this vision with the sole purpose of creating positive global impact.
AREA 2071 is for Pioneers and World-Changers
Our systems, from education to transport to healthcare, were designed and built at a different time. Humanity’s needs have changed since then, but the systems have not. In order to make substantial change – the kind that reaches billions around the world – we need to begin asking disruptive questions and evolving global systems.
We will begin answering these questions through our challenges.
