Meet the Solver Teams: Introducing our Frontlines of Health Innovators

#HealthForAll means ensuring that everyone, everywhere can access essential quality health services without facing financial hardship. While political leaders play a critical role in advancing universal health coverage, so does innovation and social entrepreneurship.

Earlier this year, Solve announced our Frontlines of Health Challenge, and set out to find the most innovative and potentially impactful solutions that support and invest in frontline health workers and health services. After reviewing 265 solutions (learn more about solution trends here), the results are in.
