WHO SHOULD APPLY?
The program targets social entrepreneurs that meet the below selection criteria and whose organizations contribute either directly or indirectly to human & animal health access in Africa. While healthcare access lies at the core of the Making More Health program, there is also an interest in how health intersects with environmental sustainability including protection of clean water, reducing carbon emissions and smarter usage of natural resources in packaging and design.
i) Direct contribution: Innovations that contribute directly to healthcare access (for humans and animals) by providing frontline delivery of health products and services to both people as well as to farmers and their livestock. (For people, the accelerator has a particular focus on non-communicable diseases including diabetes, hypertension myocardial infarction, stroke respiratory disease and cancers.) Topics of interest include last-mile delivery, e-health solutions, disease management support services and diagnostic solutions, and one-health models.
ii) Indirect contribution: Innovations that contribute indirectly to healthcare access for humans and animals by enabling solutions that make access to healthcare more affordable, efficient, effective, accessible and sustainable. Topics of interest include health insurance innovations, data analytics, public awareness and education, emergency transport solutions, technology platforms as well as solutions combining health and environmental sustainability.
If you have an innovation that contributes to the increase in healthcare access in Africa in any of the ways described above, we are interested in receiving your application. Please review the criteria below to ensure that you qualify before applying;
