COVID-19 Global South Health and Livelihoods Challenge

How might we support low- and middle-income families in the Global South to stay

Let’s design scalable solutions to support low- and middle-income families in the urban Global South, so they can adapt and thrive during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We’re Looking For

We seek innovative ideas that demonstrate a deep understanding of low- and middle-income families in urban areas in the Global South and of those who have been most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re accepting all stages of innovations, from initial design stage to full scale rollout. Anyone is able to submit to the Challenge, whether you are an individual, a team, or a registered organization.

We’re Offering

Prize funds and support will be available to up to 10 Top Ideas. Additionally, Top Ideas will be invited to pitch their concepts to leadership from Intercorp to be considered for additional investment and implementation.

Select ideas may also have the opportunity to be coached by La Victoria Lab, Intercorp’s innovation lab, to explore pathways for implementation.

Stay tuned for additional updates on offers.
