Young Champions of Maternal Health

Commitment by

EngenderHealth

In 2009, The Maternal Health Task Force at EngenderHealth, Ashoka, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation committed to support up to 32 Young Champions to form the first-ever cadre of young maternal health professionals. Using Ashoka's renowned vetting process to identify entrepreneurial innovation, Young Champions were selected based on their novel approaches to reducing maternal death and disability, especially in developing countries. Each Young Champion spent nine months working with, and being mentored by, one of Ashoka's Fellows located in a developing country.
