At Mawazo challenge we believe in pursuing big ideas, finding solutions and sharing results for many challenges facing our country, and this time Health is our priority. As it has been said ‘no research no right to speak’, and we go further to say ‘no ideas, no research no solution for health problem’, however a shelved idea brings no impact hence our call for ideas. We believe, a well done research, a well thought idea, a well-planned project backed up with innovation will result into not only solution but frugal solution for health problems. And where else can research and innovation be nurtured and found than at our Universities? And this is why we are bringing this Challenge to you. We call all students studying at universities of health and allied sciences to take part in order to develop and explore their ideas to innovative solution ideas. We believe medicine, nursing, pharmacy, dentistry and other sciences students have the tenacity, capacity and passion to bring innovative and frugal solutions to the health sector in Tanzania, Africa and to the world. We are set to challenge the notion of doing researches for feeding the library shelves, and letting our ideas die because they sound impossible. It’s time to put them out and if possible commercialize them for the purposes of improving both community health and livelihood too. Are you a student studying at the Health and Allied science Universities in Tanzania? Do you believe your idea and/or research can make a difference in lives of people in your community like we do? Are you innovative enough? Are you currently working on idea, project, research, invention or idea and you are passionate about it and you want to bring it into life? Well, Mawazo Challenge Student Health Innovation Competition is looking for you.
