$200,000 for BoP Health Care Innovators

With just 11 percent of the world’s population but a whopping 24 percent of the global disease burden, improving health outcomes in sub-Saharan Africa is a major challenge. There is increasing recognition that the private sector has an enormous role to play in addressing this challenge, especially for the poor.
Fifty percent of the $16.7 billion that consumers spent on health care in 2005 went to private providers.

Supporting these health providers is critical to addressing health challenges in these regions.
