Imaging the World Africa selected to showcase Social Innovation in Health Initiative
A collaborative program, led by the WHO, the World Bank and other UN agencies, is identifying innovative health solutions in poor countries that hold promise in improving levels of health care. In a second round of study in 2018, the program recently identified 79 eligible projects and the study of 15 social innovations in health. Imaging the World Africa’s work in Uganda is among the projects highlighted by the WHO.
The Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR) is a global program of scientific collaboration that helps facilitate, support and influence efforts to combat diseases of poverty. It is hosted at the World Health Organization (WHO) and sponsored by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the World Bank and WHO. Its mission is to foster an effective global research effort on infectious diseases of poverty and promote the implementation of innovations so that they can have a broader impact on health in disease endemic countries.
