Challenge statement: Increase Awareness to Decrease Diagnosis Time for patients with Rare and Genetic Diseases
 
Question: Since an early diagnosis and treatment lead to a better prognosis and life expectancy for Rare and Genetic Disease Patients. In a highly digitalized world, how can we use technology to raise Rare and Genetic Disease awareness amongst the general public and physicians to bring patients and their families earlier into the clinic and reduce the time to a confirmed diagnosis?
The vision: To have several prototypes that can offer a wide range of technology solutions that can increase the awareness of rare diseases to improve and decrease diagnosis pathway for patients in the MENA region.

What are we looking for?
1. Software-based solutions
2. No medication-based solutions
