CO-CREATION IDEA: Please offer a brief description of how you imagine a win-win partnership with Boehringer Ingelheim to better serve unmet needs in health. (Hint: Please mention the underlying business model envisioned that would make such a partnership sustainable.)
Boehringer Ingelheim’s success is founded on innovation and sustainable growth, two essential components in our program expansion. We refuse to sacrifice the high quality effectiveness of our work as we extend to more remote areas, and Boehringer Ingelheim’s expertise would be a major asset during this transition. We’re open to a wide range of innovation including adapting our model of education and delivery, and shifting the structure of service delivery. For Boehringer Ingelheim, a partnership with ROH is an opportunity to further the mission of social entrepreneurship, “creating more health.” Palawan is a remote island and major tourist destination, and would provide a unique opportunity for the company to do this in an underserved area.
