2021 Entrepreneurs for Resilience Award

Making healthcare financially accessible to low-income people

In a vicious circle, ill health exacerbates and cements poverty, which breeds ill health. A lack of financial resources, in turn, can stand in the way of getting health services.

Does healthcare have to be harder for low-income people to access although they often need care the most? Not if the three ventures vying for our 2021 Entrepreneurs for Resilience Award have anything to do with it.

Discover their innovative ways of increasing financial inclusion in healthcare, and watch one of them take the top prize at our live virtual 2021 Entrepreneurs for Resilience Award ceremony on 19 May at 12:30 CEST.
