Prix et Concours

Create an innovative solution to save children’s lives and win $ 150,000 in Children’s Prize

In 2014, two projects were selected as case studies to strengthen development and more precisely determine the impact of infant mortality from a Prize focused on scientific data and evidence. These case studies were used as real scenarios to understand what changes needed to be made in terms of data collection and analysis, and how the Prize could be refined to best meet these needs. The Children’s Prize is an online competition whose mission is to advance the health and survival of children by emphasizing impact and evidence-based interventions.
