How to Improve Health for All


Until May 10, 2006, Changemakers's "Health for All" competition for its Innovation Award solicited proposals from social entrepreneurs that address the challenge of providing quality health solutions to low-income and marginalized populations. Finalists will be selected by a panel of judges, and Changemakers's online community will vote to select three winners who will each receive a $5,000 prize.
