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.
