A few months ago, Ashoka Changemakers and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Pioneer Portfolio launched the 'Innovations for Health' competition. Today we are happy to announce the early entry winners:

PATIENT LEADERS United Kingdom

The Centre for Patient Leadership sees (and positions) patients as leaders in pursuing solutions for better health care. The Centre runs programs that provide the knowledge, skills and behaviors that are required for patient leaders to catalyze and create change in the health care system. To date, 80 patient leaders have gone through the program, and feedback has been positive – both from the patients, with regard to their health, as well as from the organizations, with regard to capacity and decision-making processes.

BEYOND BORDERS Pakistan & India

NAYA JEEVAN is a social enterprise that provides low-income families around the developing world with affordable access to quality healthcare through the creation of hybrid models. Through projects with multinational corporations like Proctor & Gamble, and Kansai Paints (a Japanese paint company), Naya Jeevan is creating critical and sustainable models for delivery of healthcare to some of the world’s most vulnerable populations.

[Editor's note: Dr. Asher Hasan, the founder and CEO of NAYA JEEVAN, is an Ashoka Fellow.]

To date, the competition has received 118 entries, and the numbers are climbing. Among them, we are seeing a significant interest in models that are centered on A) mobile technology, and B) patients – both models that are consistent with trends coming out of previous health care competitions we have hosted. Three winners will be selected by a panel of expert judges, and will each receive a cash prize of US $10,000.

So submit your solution, nominate a project, or simply spread the word – the deadline is February 13th!
