IBM launches new initiative to help communities tackle public health challenges

Tuesday, March 29, 2016

IBM has launched a global corporate citizenship programme in which health organisations, selected through a competitive process, will receive the expertise of IBM’s best problem-solving teams with health expertise to help tackle public health issues. 

The company is now inviting civil, governmental, and social sector organisations -– such as regional or national health departments, not-for-profits, clinics, and hospitals –- to propose innovative health projects for IBM's health and technology problem solvers to address.

IBM aims to help communities surmount challenges that currently limit access to quality healthcare, and will assist organisations in addressing social and environmental determinants of health, such as safe water and sanitation, stable housing, physical fitness, and nutrition. 

Applications may be submitted to IBM until April 20 by visiting www.ibmhealthcorps.org.
