Identifying Health Innovations in Latin America and the Carribbean


credit:

Social Innovation In Health (SIHI) is an initiative which identifies innovations across the Andean States.

SIHI is seeking private and public health workers, community members, entrepreneurs, students, and nonprofits for solutions to provide and implement quality of health care or infectious disease management in Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela, Peru, or Bolivia.

The solutions could be a new service, new process or practice, or a new technology. These solutions must increase the capacity of people and improve quality of life.

SIHI offers creative and non-traditional approaches to address complex social problems which have not been able to solve.

However, SIHI is not looking for scientific solutions that include drugs or advanced medical devices.

Applications will be considered once the application form has been completed and submitted before the due date. The duration of implementation is for one year. Read the Entire Article
