Deadline: March 15, 2023

The AB Global Health Initiative (ABGHI) is a Non-Profit Organization committed to improving global health through community programs, educative courses, and innovative solutions to strengthen community health system capacities.

Through this Challenge, we will identify and support novel solutions that draw from the experiences of affected communities to significantly improve – and in many cases, save – the lives of vulnerable people.

Every year, following an open call for submissions, participants are invited to present their innovations to a panel of judges composed of experts in global health, international development, health systems strengthening, and innovation. These projects, solutions, and ideas are expected to be low-cost, high-impact, sustainable, and scalable. All applicants will become a part of the innovation Hub and will benefit from the mentorship and networking opportunities with peers.


Participants compete for grants and 2 projects are selected yearly to receive as much as 1,000,000 Naira in funding solely towards implementation, unique mentorship, and exposure opportunities.


  • Participants will be students of any health-related and multi-disciplinary background in any higher institution in Nigeria. Early-career young professionals are encouraged to apply.
  • The participants should be between the ages of 18 – 30 years.
  • They highly encourage female applicants and persons living with disability to apply.
  • The competition will be restricted to Health themes directly related to community development.


Interested applicants are invited to submit concept notes containing basic information of their projects or innovations. The proposals for the projects which will be implemented over an initial period of 1 year can be submitted individually or as a team (maximum of 4). They ask that you also submit resumes. Describe in your concept notes how sustainable and scalable this project will be after implementation
