Yet women are the vast majority of health and social care workers, and largely excluded from decision making, to the detriment of everybody’s health. As a result, gender inequities in global health security are undermining the COVID-19 digital response and the achievement of universal health coverage.

Startup Funding for Women-Led Businesses

The #BuildBackBetter Digital Innovation and AI Challenge from Women in Global Health and Novartis Foundation will identify innovative digital and artificial intelligence solutions in low-middle income countries that address health security during COVID-19 and future health emergencies with the potential to:

  • Increase the number of women as creators of digital health and AI solutions
  • Increase the number of women as leaders of digital health and AI companies and initiatives
  • Ensure that that digital health solutions enable health systems to meet the health needs of all genders

The winners of the challenge will be awarded $10,000 and the runners-up will receive $5,000 to develop their innovation further. They will also receive guidance from an innovation mentor assigned by Women in Global Health.
