Health & Innovation
Information technology can significantly advance the delivery of healthcare in developing countries, addressing problems such as the high risk of maternal death across Africa and HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment. “Health & Innovation” will directly support organizations working to improve health outcomes in developing countries. We work in partnership with the following organizations:
Doctors without Borders – Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) – and their training and research partner, Epicentre to support their Niger Research Center with $100,000 a year over a period of 3 years, the goal is to support MSF and Epicentre’s capacity building at the Center and support African driven research to improve medical practice within Niger and MSF as a whole.
AMREF Health Africa’s JIBU program will use an $80,000 a year over 3-year grant to scale their mobile nursing education pilot into a comprehensive program to provide targeted m-learning or mobile nursing education in Eastern Africa.
The Nurse Faculty Leadership Academy: since 2008, the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI), has received an annual partnership grant of $100,000 to develop the Nurse Faculty Leadership Academy into a rigorous leadership development curriculum enabling junior nurse faculty to develop the necessary leadership skills to become successful leaders in nursing education.
