Hello, medical students of Indonesia!
Yet another global opportunity for you to grab! This time, we are excited to announce that Innovate4Health Design Sprint 2022 are calling for participants and it is opened for all Indonesian medical students!
Innovate4Health is an online collaborative design sprint looking for innovative and creative solutions that will help address the issues of emerging infectious disease threats. After identifying a specific problem and a proposed innovation solution, student teams will be selected to join the cohort of this year’s Innovate4Health design sprint. Students will have the opportunity to work with the ReAct Strategic Policy Program and other expert coaches to design innovations that will take on the intersectoral challenge of emerging infectious diseases, from COVID-19 to antimicrobial resistance.
Taking a systems approach, Innovate4Health emphasizes social innovations that consider the needs of resource-limited settings. Innovate4Health seeks projects that have strategic potential to innovate the space of addressing emerging infectious diseases. At the application stage, they may not be fully formed or piloted. However, the central idea should be highly promising, and the team, open to evolving further the potential of this idea. Proposed projects or interventions should have a theory of change, a target population, an innovative approach, and the potential for scale-up or replication.
