Approximately 1 million women and children die every year in Nigeria from illnesses and poor health services. The Private Sector Health Alliance believes that to stop this from happening again this year and in the future, the health sector has to be ready to try new 'out-of-the-box' approaches to improve the health system and quality of services it provides.

This led to the launch of the Health Innovation Challenge which is a competition to identify, celebrate, reward and invest in healthcare innovations that address Nigeria's biggest health problems. 

Prizes to be awarded to health innovators include:

1st Prize Category   - Grants up to $100,000.00

2nd Prize Category  - Grants up to $50,000.00

3rd Prize Category   - Grants up to $30,000.00

Are you an entrepreneur techi, health professional, subject matter expert, academia, student, or you simply have a passion for innovation? Then this is definitely for you!
