More Details

Did you know? Our health is impacted by more than the medical care we receive.

All of us are influenced by everyday factors in our lives โ€“ where we live and go to school, how we buy our food, and whether we have enough money in our pocket. These factors are called the Determinants of Health and they help determine how long and how healthily we live.

Lafiya Innovators is a startup incubation program to support and accelerate early- to mid-stage startups in emerging economies โ€“ focused on public health, healthcare, or directly impacting the determinants of health.

Are you launching or leading a startup that will help make your local community healthier? Lafiya Innovators could be the right fit for you.
