Abstract:
    A mobile application to make the process of blood donation effective and efficient by generating location based requests to the donors with matching blood group.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    The most pressing concerns in world today is alarming high number of deaths due to lack of donated blood. Every 2 second someone in world is in need of urgent blood supply. Yearly 1 million people need blood during chemotherapy treatment.25% of deaths, during birth are due to lack of blood supply.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Blood requirement occurs mostly as a result of emergency situations which can involve anyone. Therefore our application targets everyone and anyone in need of blood. According to a report 364/10,000 people donate blood in high-income countries, so we aim to reach at least this target.
How will the solution works
    Our solution is that of a mobile application which will require registration of donors and recipients. Blood requests will be sent to donors on the basis of location and blood type in the form of application notification, text messages or phone calls. The main database server (SQL) will running live on amazon web services. This server will be connected to the application through a web server which will be hosted on a live virtual machine (EC2) also hosted through AWS.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    We don’t really have competitors in Pakistan as there isn't any efficient platform for this type of service. Competitors like American Red Cross Blood App or Blood donor mobile are not available in Pakistan. Only significant competitor is Blood Bank Pakistan which too lacks some important features.
