Another @Changemakers Competition!

The Making More Health competition, launched by Ashoka’s Changemakers in partnership with Boehringer Ingelheim, seeks innovative models that are transforming the field of health to sustainably increase the well-being of individuals, families, and communities.

We welcome solutions and collaborations along the entire health continuum, from prevention and lifestyle, to detection and treatment. Eligible initiatives may target a wide variety of populations throughout the world and include (but are not limited to) those that:

  • Increase access to quality health services and treatment: Innovations may incorporate strategies such as addressing cultural and financial barriers, lack of transportation, decentralized medical resources, and gaps in education and knowledge.
    Solutions may include initiatives for disease prevention and diagnosis, developing healthy lifestyles, or advocacy and awareness programs relevant to any life stage.
  • Empower individuals, families, and communities to address local health issues:Innovations may engage and inform individuals, families, and communities, and allow them to directly participate in the management of their own health. These span a range of solutions from communal patient care initiatives to programs that nurture a culture of health within communities.
  • Target vulnerable and underserved populations: Entries may include those that address conflict and/or post-crisis environments, poverty and development as related to health, mental health, or rural health.

The potential to accelerate progress in the field of health is enormous. Help individuals, families, and communities achieve good health by submitting or nominating a solution today.
