Coming Soon: Changemakers Award Competition on "How to Improve Health for All"

Beginning March 1, the Ashoka Changemakers program (www.changemakers.net) will host a global competition for the best solutions on “How to Improve Health for All” that emphasize collaborative partnerships between citizen-sector, business, and government organizations. Participants will be encouraged to submit the most innovative and cost-effective solutions that can be widely replicated and are financially sustainable. The Changemakers Innovation Awards series is based on a unique “open source” format where participants compete by entering the best solutions to pressing social issues while collaborating to advance current initiatives. For 25 years Ashoka (www.ashoka.org) has invested in some 1,700 leading social entrepreneurs with systems-changing ideas from 62 countries on five continents. These Ashoka Fellows are selected for their innovative and practical ideas to address social needs in fields such as economic development, health, environment, learning, human rights, and civic participation. For details on the Changemakers award, visit the Changemakers website.
