Awardees from the Africa Young Innovators for Health Award showcased their game changing innovations to key actors at the Geneva Health Forum from 3-5 May 2022. Conrad Tankou (GIC Space), Nuriat Nambogo (MobiCare), and Nyambura Muroki (Daktari Online), pictured on News front page, alongside shortlisted applicant Sesinam Dagadu (SnooCODE Red), were present for the Forum.
During the 9th edition of the Forum, under the theme “Covid-19 Pandemic and Environmental Emergency: Reinventing Global Health in Times of Global Changes,” the entrepreneurs presented their healthcare solutions, which aim to protect, support, equip, and train healthcare professionals who have been working tirelessly to protect and treat the public amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, to various attendees.
Their innovations were part of more than 100 global innovations at this year’s Global Health Lab, an innovation fair and one of the critical elements of the Forum focused on showcasing breakthroughs in healthcare ranging from telemedicine diagnostics and treatment to affordable medical devices.
The Geneva Health Forum brings together more than 1,600 participants in person and over 290 virtually from all sectors – field practitioners, academics, professors from the public and private sector, policymakers, and international and non-governmental organizations – for dynamic conversations on improving health and care access worldwide. The Forum also gives visibility to innovative field experiences, especially by promoting innovative practices that enhance access to care in resource-limited settings.
