Given mounting threats to societal resilience and obstacles to significant progress toward universal health coverage by 2030 – a key health-related SDG – have decided a stronger form of partnership is needed to spur, guide and support initiatives that improve access to and quality of primary care for low-income households in LMICs.

The Swiss Re Foundation Entrepreneurs for Resilience Award has recognised entrepreneurial initiatives that take innovative approaches to build resilient societies in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Applications is open to social entrepreneurs who aim to improve low-income people’s access to quality primary healthcare in LMICs by offering a hybrid delivery model that combines a physical point of care and supportive digital tools.
