The Africa Young Innovators for Health Award is launching its first competition designed to highlight and support the work of pioneering young entrepreneurs developing health innovations. IFPMA and Speak Up Africa want to encourage business entrepreneurship and help advance promising health care solutions. This year, we are searching for solutions that support and empower healthcare workers – those on the frontline of delivering healthcare to communities.
Successful applicants need to show how their health innovation is scalable, measurable and makes a lasting impact on supporting and empowering healthcare workers. Those who do can receive funding of up to $40,000 and follow a business mentorship programme delivered by leading entrepreneurs to help bring their idea to life.
The “Africa Young Innovators for Health Award” is supported by AMREF Health Africa, BroadReach, Ecobank Academy, Forum Galien Africa, IntraHealth International, Microsoft 4Afrika, the RBM Partnership to End Malaria, Social Change Factory, Africa.com and Sci.Dev.
Applications will be open from 11 January 2021 to 31 March 2021. For more information, please visit https://africayounginnovatorsforhealth.org/
