MIT Solve accepting Proposals for Health Security & Pandemics Challenge

Deadline Date: 16 Jun 2021
Grant Amount: $1000 to $10,000

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Solve is currently accepting proposals for its Health Security & Pandemics Challenge.

The Covid-19 pandemic has tragically exposed our lack of global preparedness for disease outbreaks. The crisis highlights huge health inequities and has laid bare the urgent need to reduce the risk of future health security threats and address the weaknesses in our health systems. 

The MIT Solve community is looking for technology-based solutions that protect all people—especially those most underserved and at risk because of their race, ethnicity, age, gender, or income—from the impacts of disease outbreaks. To that end, Solve seeks solutions that:

  • Equip last-mile primary healthcare providers with the necessary tools and knowledge to detect disease outbreaks quickly and respond to them effectively.
  • Strengthen disease surveillance, early warning predictive systems, and other data systems to detect, slow, or halt future disease outbreaks.
  • Prevent the spread of misinformation and inspire individuals to protect themselves and their communities, including through information campaigns and behavioural nudges.
  • Combat loneliness, stress, depression, and other mental health impacts of disease outbreaks.
