After reviewing more than 100+ submissions over the course of the past six months, we are thrilled to announce the five Top Ideas that we believe are addressing important and urgent global challenges influencing caregivers in immunization. Additionally, we have selected four promising concepts with certain potential for future impact, as Honorable Mention Ideas.
Each Top Idea will be awarded $10,000 in funding to support their innovation.
These selected concepts reflect the collective momentum of this community—over 750 comments, and 18,751 changemakers from over 128 countries around the world—who came together to empower caregivers to seek and fully utilize immunization services in their community. During the Refinement Phase, our 32 shortlisted concepts received acceleration support via 18 teams of design prototypers, 4 expert webinars, 6 office hours with the IDEO community management team, and 1 User Feedback Summit in Nairobi, Kenya.
