The three-year Making More Health scheme will aim to find and develop promising solutions to key healthcare issues, a process that will include the election of 50 Ashoka Fellows with sector-driving innovative ideas.

Among the programmes that will be conducted via the initiative are a pair of web-based changemaker competitions, which will encourage members of the public to submit concepts on how to improve health in underserved communities.

Meanwhile, Boehringer Ingelheim will also be seeking to engage the 42,000 members of its global workforce to communicate the ideals of social entrepreneurship and health innovation within their communities.

Professor Dr Andreas Barner, chairman of the board of managing directors at Boehringer Ingelheim, said: "Through this partnership we will bring forth meaningful and sustainable solutions that can achieve individual and family wellbeing in communities around the globe."
