“Making Access Happen” by supporting healthcare access pioneers
Universal access to healthcare remains the single largest unmet medical need. Two billion people lack access to the medicines they need. Four hundred million lack access to essential health services.
In October 2018 we launched the second Sandoz HACk, a global competition that invites inspirational ideas that use digital technology with the potential to complement – or even disrupt – established approaches to healthcare access.
Thank you! The response has been amazing, with over 400 ideas from 80 countries, highlighting the need for novel approaches to improve and extend people’s lives.
We are now in the process of reviewing and judging the submissions and look forward to announcing the three finalists in January 2019.
Bringing ideas to Life
Three teams will travel to Austin, Texas, in March 2019. They will participate in an Accelerator event where Sandoz will collaborate with the finalist teams to incubate and enhance their ideas. The finalist teams will also attend and experience SXSW.
The winner will receive seed funding and support from Sandoz to help bring their idea to life
