Unitaid sponsors innovators’ competition to find solutions for global health

Geneva — As part of our commitment to explore different ways of speeding up innovation, Unitaid is partnering with the global non-profit organization Hello Tomorrow for the 5th edition of its deep-tech innovators’ competition.

The Hello Tomorrow Global Challenge connects science and technology startups from across the globe with the right enablers, such as Unitaid, to solve some of the world’s most pressing issues.

“The partnership with Hello Tomorrow will help us expand our reach and tap into the world of deep-tech startups, incubators and venture capital, a new and exciting space for Unitaid,” said Lelio Marmora, Unitaid’s executive director.

The competition, offering 12 tracks ranging from aerospace to environment, is being launched today via a social media campaign.

Unitaid will sponsor the competition’s new global health track, which hopes to attract breakthrough technologies to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases in low-income countries, new solutions to speed access to quality healthcare, and technologies addressing emerging health threats.

Finalists will be invited to present their innovations at Hello Tomorrow’s Global Summit, to be held from 14-15 March 2019 in Paris.
