Sponsorship Levels

WID-I4H is at the vanguard of patient care, healthcare and medical science. No matter your station, location, industry or profession, we all have a stake in safeguarding and improving public healthcare and promoting the development of cutting edge medical technologiesWID-I4H is an international competition platform that compliments and reinforces several key global sustainability initiatives in order to improve access to affordable healthcare and improve patient care. These include:

Empowering Women: 

  • Most of the staff at patient care facilities and hospitals are women. They are on the front lines of patient care, so they see and often solve problems through innovations.
  • Building self-esteem: WID-I4H recognizes that hospital staff, at any level, who live at the front lines of patient care, are in a unique position to identify and pioneer improvements in the system.
  • WID-I4H encourages them to present their innovations that have a strong impact on patient care and healthcare.
  • Because these innovations are driven by necessity, we know they solve real problems. Therein lies the beauty.

Well Being:

  • WID-I4H is a platform for ideas and innovations that run North to South as well as South to North!
  • Even in developed countries, there is a significant portion of the population (the 4th world or poor people in developed countries) that cannot access affordable/quality healthcare. We bring “frugal” or “lean” innovations from global entrepreneurs, including in emerging/developed countries that may impact how hospitals and patient care facilities in more advanced nations approach health innovation.

Innovation 4 Health translates to improvements in labor, production, family security and education. Healthy parents perform better at work and can better fend/provide for their families. Healthy children can focus and thrive at school. Educated children become innovators and help to build wealth and preserve/grow the resources in their communities.

Bottom Line: Brand values reinforce product values; people buy into and respect what matches their personal values. WID-I4H’s focus on promoting innovations that improve patient care and that provide quality/affordable access to healthcare are values in which all individuals, corporate entities, NGOs and governments have a stake!
