USAID’s Inclusive Health Access Prize 2019 ($150,000 in prizes)
Deadline: June 28, 2019
Applications for the USAID’s Inclusive Health Access Prize 2019 are open. The USAID’s Inclusive Health Access Prize is a global call for proven successes in expanding access to life-saving basic health care in low- and middle-income countries.
This prize will recognize and incentivize work that demonstrates how integration and partnership between public and private sector expands access to affordable, accountable, and reliable health services for poor and vulnerable groups. The aim is also to celebrate and spur a broad range of approaches that are sustainable, scalable, and replicable. USAID will spotlight and facilitate access to funding and other support so proven models can obtain maximum reach and impact.
- USAID’s Office of Health Systems will award $150,000 in prizes for innovative, privately-led approaches with strong scale-up potential that have helped expand access to affordable, accountable, and reliable health services for poor and vulnerable groups.
- All finalists will be showcased here, as well as in other forums.
- Up to six winners will be announced at a United Nations General Assembly event in September 2019 and each will be awarded $25,000 in funding under USAID’s Innovation Incentive Award Authority. These awards are issued as funds transfers to bank accounts and all award monies may be used at the winning teams’ discretion.
- One representative from each winning team will represent their team at the United Nations General Assembly event to showcase their leadership, diversity, and potential in the global health field for other leading stakeholders and donors.
- Open to private organizations with a track record of affordably, accountably, and reliably expanding health care access to the poor and most vulnerable through public-private integration, while also demonstrating a vision for expanding this approach to new geographies.
