Sanofi wants to support the most impactful and innovative health solutions to better answer underserved communities needs and contribute to achieve UN Sustainable Development Goals.

From July to September, Sanofi and MakeSense traveled across 3 cities in the country to identify local health challenges, create awareness on health issues and support the creation of health social enterprises answering the needs of local communities. In 2 months, Sanofi reached 30,000 people online and supported the creation of 17social startups! Now that this roadshow is over, the partners want to go a step further supporting the best teams in the prototyping and test of their ideas over 2,000 Gawad Kalinga villages!

It’s time  to take this health mobilization to the next level!
