WFP is launching the Digital Health Innovation Accelerator Program, powered by WFP Innovation Accelerator and the digilab, jointly led by BMZ - Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, KfW - Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and the GIZ.
We are in search of scalable digital solutions using open standards and approaches towards the creation of global goods, with a focus on building and supporting pandemic preparedness capabilities in low- and middle-income countries. As the COVID-19 vaccination campaign continues globally, we aim to leverage these digital solutions to accelerate the vaccination campaign, thereby maximizing its impact and the recovery of communities and health systems in low- and middle-income countries.
The selected solutions will participate in an Innovation Bootcamp and will be considered for the WFP Sprint Initiative, a 6-month acceleration program with each solution having access up to $250,000 in equity-free funding, mentorship, and a network of partners in public health space.
We welcome all innovators in this forum, working on digital health solutions for Pandemic Preparedness or COVID-19 vaccination coverage to apply. The last date for applications is November 21, 2021.
