Ashoka and The Johnson & Johnson Foundation have joined forces in a powerful collaboration with the common goal of surfacing pioneering practices and growing the field of Community Health innovation in Europe! This challenge is made for those who want to build the field of community health in Europe and who are passionate about creating solutions in the field of community health, whether through making novel interventions, improving health equity, or strengthening community agency.
Applications were open until February 28th, 2022 here
With this partnership we are looking to build a system that values well-being and prevention as much as it values treatment – acknowledging the vital importance of Community Health in creating a healthier society. By making people within communities healthier, the innovations we support will inevitably improve those communities in other ways, making them more livable, equitable, and cohesive.
This challenge is the first Europe-wide challenge to find and support Community Health innovators. We are looking for pioneers in community health across Europe – system entrepreneurs who are improving health outcomes within their communities by delivering person-centered solutions. The goal is to identify these innovators, help them grow their impact and build a community that fosters an enabling environment, creating systemic change across Europe.
