Tell us about your partnerships
The partnership is composed of two partners – NGO “Health into the XXI century” and the Ministry of Health. The Ministry is an extremely strong partner, whose interest ensures a greater part of the project’s success. The need in an awareness raising project was voiced by it. “Health into the XXI century” designed an idea and now is looking for its funding. The ministry is ready to provide informational and technical support by facilitating technical procedures.
Are you currently targeting other specific populations, locations, or markets for your innovation? If so, where and why?
No, we are not targeting other specific populations, locations, or markets for our innovation at the moment. As this initiative has never been implemented in Belarus before, we are planning to start with Minsk and further involve other cities. Thus, we are targeting the people who visit state hospitals (usually those with medium and low income), primarily, married couples at the age of around 18-35 years old, who have little children.
What type of operating environment and internal organizational factors make your innovation successful?
Our initiative aims at solution of such a serious problem, as child injuries and deaths in accidents, in a very creative and still effective way. For this reason it is likely to draw a lot of public attention and help parents to realize how children’s world really looks like. Our team consists of well-educated and experienced employees, which can ensure qualitative performance of the project. Besides, the government will facilitate various technical procedures: e.g., ensuring co-operation with hospitals all over Belarus, providing premises and lecturers for the exhibition, registering grant, receiving letters of support from relevant institutions etc.
