BLUMORPHO collaborates with stakeholders who are looking for innovative solutions to address unmet health challenges in remote areas and with public and private investors willing to invest in impactful solutions. Working with communities and authorities in remote areas like Niomré (Senegal), we are organizing the 2024 Better Health in Remote Areas edition, inviting startups, corporates, investors, and organizations to join. 

 

A selected committee of local stakeholders and renowned funding organizations (e.g., World Bank, Invest Finance, Senegalese government) will ensure your innovation fits community needs and can be implemented with the right support. Discover the selected challenges below and apply for free to get a chance to check your product market fit, build partnerships and receive feedback on your solution. If selected, a participation fee will apply to start the discussion. 

For which of these challenges is your innovative solution relevant?

Diagnostic

We are interested in solutions to overcome these obstacles, such as platforms enabling women to consult healthcare providers, receive medical advice, and undergo screenings and diagnostic tests, including point-of-care ultrasound devices and rapid tests for early detection and treatment. Initiatives focusing on education, counseling, and basic healthcare services are also needed to raise awareness about reproductive health, family planning, maternal health , and providing essential prenatal and postnatal care to pregnant women. If your solutions meet these needs, apply to our initiative and contribute to improve women’s healthcare where it is most needed.

Infantile diseases present significant challenges, including respiratory infections, diarrheal diseases, dermatological issues, and malnutrition. We are looking for solutions to tackle this urgent need, such as rapid diagnostic tests for common infantile illnesses, affordable treatments, and intelligent algorithms to aid in timely intervention. Solutions related to education and counseling for parents and caregivers are also needed to raise awareness about preventive measures and early detection options. Apply if your solution fits within the scope of what we are seeking.
