Social Innovation in Health Initiative
The SIHI team visited 15 countries across 3 continents to witness selected social innovations
in action and meet with the passionate change-makers driving these solutions forward.
A short film "Our Journey: Voices from the Global South" was made to share the experiences
and perspectives of social innovators in health. The SIHI team presented this film at the
Fourth Global Symposium on Health Systems Research in Vancouver, 14 - 18 November 2016.
World Health Organization and TDR, the Special Programme for Research and

to enhance social innovations in health delivery.
