When referring to "COVID-19-associated disruptions" we mean that we are looking for innovations that fit into one of the below categories:
- Innovations that focus on essential nutrition and healthcare services, particularly HIV, tuberculosis, and maternal, newborn, and child healthcare services. (SDG 2 & SDG 3)
- Education innovations to reduce the inequalities COVID-19 has placed on students from low socioeconomic households. (SDG 4)
- Innovations that respond or prevent gender based violence or intimate partner violence (SDG 5).
- Innovations that focus on vulnerable and marginalized populations that have been hit hardest by the pandemic including: older persons, persons with disabilities, children, women, migrants and refugees, and indigenous populations (SDG 1, SDG 10).
Additionally, innovations must be locally-led, and have a concrete vision and plan to scale their innovation's impact beyond the pandemic. Learn more about the criteria here.
