Three winners of the Health Supply Chain Solutions Challenge were named during Uganda’s National Health Supply Chain Week (July 26–30, 2021). The winners were selected from a pool of more than 130 concepts presented to the competition’s judges.
The Global Entrepreneurship Monitor 2019/2020 ranked Uganda one of the most entrepreneurial countries in the world with 30 per cent of Ugandans starting businesses annually.
In the United States of America and Japan, that figure stands at 7 per cent and 11 per cent respectively.

Our history is marred with periods that put human ingenuity to the test, from the world wars, the great depression, and the 2008 financial crisis.
For millennia, humans have been on repeat, using the same tactics or tools used by those who came before, but with impediments and caveats caused by the new COVID-19 crisis, the need for change in our response has never been greater.
