New solutions for today’s enduring health challenges can come from anyone, anywhere. A new method… a twist on a tried-and-true practice… an adaptation out of necessity that reveals a new way forward… These everyday innovations have the potential to transform health for people, communities, and humanity.

Join Johnson & Johnson during the UN General Assembly for a hands-on discussion, workshop, and networking mixer to help turn your spark of an idea into the concept that could win one of six prizes from the GenH Challenge, a social venture competition offering up to $1 million in cash and other incentives to pioneers of ingenuity worldwide. Whether you’ve started an application or are just forming a possible idea, this event will provide tools and insights that can strengthen your application to the GenH Challenge.
