A kit designed with local aesthetics in mind that holds Zika prevention methods (sprays, clothing, nets, and screens). These are distributed through a combination of places; airports, schools, and mobile centers (shipping containers) where people both receive kits and information. To reinforce the threat level in certain areas a combination of radio messaging and colored lights will inform people of both the severity and type of prevention method they should be focused on.

I loved this idea from the prototyping event... I think the most powerful aspect of this approach is the 'buy one, give one' model that could tap heavily into the Brazilian tourism industry and especially the Olympics travelers. While a lot of organizations will be attempting to push out these kind of supplies, having them organized into a kit to avoid redundancies, and accompanied by a funding model that could scale distribution could be quite effective.
