Solution Categories for the Africa Innovation Challenge 2.0

The challenge”s six new solution categories aim to address significant threats to Africa”s health care systems and environment:

  • Botanical Solutions: Sixty to eighty percent of households in Africa still rely on traditional medicine to care for themselves and loved ones.iii We are seeking naturally-derived, plant-based solutions that tap into traditional knowledge and deliver consumer health and wellness benefits through topical application.
  • Packaging Innovations: Managing packaging waste from the increasing consumption in Africa is a challenge for many communities. We are seeking sustainable innovations for packaging of single-dose units and other affordable product sizes that will reduce or eliminate waste, while protecting the product.
  • Mental Health: Caring for someone with mental illness, especially the youth, can be very challenging for rural communities. As a result, 75-85% of persons living with mental illness in Africa may not have access to mental health care.iv We are seeking innovations that create awareness for mental illness as a public health problem and offer solutions for patients, caregivers, and their communities to address these issues.
  • Health Worker Support: African frontline health workers experience high rates of stress and burnout due to the heavy burden of disease and marked health system challenges. We are seeking innovations that support the wellbeing and resilience of nurses, midwives and community health workers at the heart of delivering care.
  • Digital Health Tools: The African continent has the world”s poorest health outcomes, with HIV, TB, Mental Health, Maternal Health and Ebola having especially large impact particularly on women. We are seeking digital tools (including apps and other mobile/web/data enabled tech) for these important health care areas that can inform, educate, communicate and connect people to treatment, support and care through their reach and information and improve health outcomes especially for women.
  • Essential Surgical Care: A significant portion of the burden of disease in Africa can be treated with surgery. However, many health facilities in certain areas do not have the capacity to deliver even basic surgical services. We are seeking innovations that promote access to timely, safe, and skilled surgical care.

Challenge submissions may originate from anywhere in Africa, and from one or more individuals, teams or companies; subject to certain eligibility requirements set out in the terms and conditions for the challenge. The submitted health care solutions will be evaluated based on their ability to meet the following criteria:
1) Idea submission addresses at least one of the six challenge categories.

About Africa Innovation Challenge 1.0

The first Johnson & Johnson Africa Innovation Challenge, launched in November 2016, sought novel ideas with a focus on three critical health areas: promoting early child development and maternal health; empowering young women; and improving family well-being.

The three winning concepts embraced these themes as well as the goal of creating ongoing, sustainable businesses:

  • The Big Idea: Reusable Feminine Hygiene Products
    Francoise Nibizi, founder and executive director of SaCoDé, Burundi

    Johnson & Johnson mentoring and funding helped Francoise to scale up production of Agateka pads fourfold, opening two new manufacturing locations and creating training and permanent jobs for 20 young women.

  • The Big Idea: Hands-Free Faucets to Fight the Spread of Diseases
    Grace Nakibaala, CEO and Founder of InnovAsepsis, Uganda

    After one year of support, patent and trademark applications have been filed for the PedalTap™ device, the device is now being manufactured in Uganda, and the device has been installed in several public bathrooms, reducing the risk of infection and saving water.

  • The Big Idea: Natural Skin Products That Support Small Farmers
    Mahmud Johnson, founder and CEO of J-Palm, Liberia

    With Johnson & Johnson”s support, Mahmud was able to create 330 new jobs in Liberia, broaden his product portfolio of organic palm kernel oil cosmetics and grow sales by 1100%.

International cooperation and German quality

Germany-based BASF is one of the world”s top 500 companies as well as one of its largest raw material suppliers, with more than 160 wholly-owned subsidiaries and joint ventures. No. A00088 sunflower extract, one of the group”s international patents (patent license number: FR2941864), can efficiently increase collagen synthesis by 18 per cent to 23 per cent, promote the growth and development of fibroblasts, and protect the FGF-2 fibroblast growth factor, achieving the perfect synthesis of collagen and glucosamine.

GPT, a brand of BASF (Guangzhou) Cosmetics, is an international high-end anti-aging brand. Its new product, containing bird”s nest, sunflower, argireline peptide, nanometer collagen wire, nanometer pure gold, African azedarach bark extract, can shape the facial contour, recover damaged skin cells and perfect skin structure. Once this collection of ingredients was shown to be effective, they became highlights at both 2002 World Congress of Dermatology and 2003 Vegas Cosmetic Surgery  for their ability to promote collagen production, renew skin tissue, remove fine lines and wrinkles, inhibit lipid peroxidation and restore the softness of the skin.

GPT has made a name for itself across China”s anti-aging industry. The brand has invested heavily and, due to its backing, was able to start research and development at a high level, putting up a substantial amount of capital in bringing on international star Li Xiang as spokesperson and brand ambassador, while launching simultaneous multi-channel advertising campaigns through domestic and foreign media. With its solid strength and exposure at many levels, the brand has gotten the nod from many industry insiders.
