Making More Health

Making more health is a three-year global initiative to improve health in communities around the world, by identifying and supporting the most promising solutions to challenge health problems. The partnership includes support for a series of programs aimed at identifying innovative health solutions, including the election of 50 leading social entrepreneurs (elected as "Ashoka Fellows") whose ideas are driving cutting-edge systemic solutions in the field of health. In addition, two web-based changemakers competitions will open an invitation to the public to submit new ideas on how to improve health in underserved communities. Making More Health focuses on the next generation of change makers through a youth venture program to engage young people in designing health solutions for their communities. Boehringer Ingelheim supports Making More Health by engaging its 42,000 employees worldwide in various capacities to help spread an understanding and appreciation of social entrepreneurship and health innovation within their own communities.
