McMaster Friends of MSF (FoMSF) is a student-led club at McMaster University that supports Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) Canada, a humanitarian relief-based organization that helps countries across the world. McMaster FoMSF organized the INNOVATX Global Health Case Competition to provide undergraduate students with the chance to problem-solve, enrich their skills, and above all, gain valuable exposure to global health. This year’s competition focused on the health consequences of the Syrian civil war. In particular, participants aimed to tackle a specific health-related issue of their choosing, which is currently affecting approximately 1.5 million Syrian refugees living in Lebanon, especially those residing in one of the country’s official refugee camps. After a round of written submissions and another round of live presentations, the briefing notes from the four winning teams have been published in this conference book.
