Less than 8 Days Left to Apply for the $1 Million Health Innovation Challenge!



Private Sector Health Alliance Health Innovation Challenge - BellaNaija - March 2015

Alhaji Aliko Dangote, Jim Ovia, Dr. Muhammad Ali Pate, Dr. Muntaqa Umar Sadiq, Joke Bakare, Audu Maikori and Osas Ighodaro call on innovators to apply to the $1 Million Health Innovation Challenge.

Approximately one million women and children die every year in Nigeria from illnesses and poor health services. The Private Sector Health Alliance believes that to stop this from happening again this year and in the future, the health sector has to be ready to try new ‘out-of-the-box’ approaches to improve the health system and quality of services it provides. This led to the launch of the Health Innovation Challenge which is a competition to identify, celebrate, reward and invest in healthcare innovations that address Nigeria’s biggest health problems.

Prizes to be awarded to health innovators include:

– 1st Prize Category – Grants up to $100,000
– 2nd Prize Category – Grants up to $50,000
– 3rd Prize Category – Grants up to $30,000.00

Are you an entrepreneur in technology, health professional, subject matter expert, academia, student, or you simply have a passion for innovation? Then this is definitely for you!

    @Ides of March, don’t mind them, na them sabi, when Nigeria is ready to change the health care situation, we ll know. All these ones, they are only deceiving themselves. Same thing as usual, come out make some noise and then everything dies down, nothing happens, the system remains the same. I’m also hearing this for the first time besides I don’t even understand the concept/what exactly they looking for, not that I expect them to specify, no be Nigeria again? For all you know, this could be some social media ish or show, you know how Nigerians like to show off meanwhile nobody is ready to roll up their sleeves, get down and do what needs to be done.
