Inclusive Health Access Prize

Offered by U.S. Agency for International Development as part of Inclusive Health Access Prize

USAID's Inclusive Health Access Prize is a global call for proven successes in expanding access to life-saving basic health care in low- and middle-income countries. This prize will recognize and incentivize work that demonstrates how integration and partnership between public and private sector expands access to affordable, accountable, and reliable health services for poor and vulnerable groups. The aim is also to celebrate and spur a broad range of approaches that are sustainable, scalable, and replicable.
