Competition 23 - Child Health (SBRI)
£100k - £800k
Competition 23: Child Health, funded by the Accelerated Access Collaborative and in partnership with the AHSN Network, seeks innovative solutions that improve the health and well-being of children and young people.
Children and young people (CYP) represent almost a third of the UK population and improving their health and well-being is a key priority for NHS England with CYP placed front and centre of the NHS Long Term Plan.
The competition seeks to address challenges in child health in two key focus areas:
Long-term conditions – Many long-term conditions develop during childhood. More children are presenting with multiple and complex morbidities requiring tailored management
Prevention of ill health – Promoting healthy lifestyles and preventing people from becoming ill is key to reducing the existing and future burden of disease and ensuring that everyone can live long and healthy lives.
Health inequality is a core component of this competition, and equity of access and experience should be a central pillar of any successful innovation.
Applicants are asked to consider the impact of their innovation on the whole system and to be aware of the competitive environment, even considering working together with other companies and organisations to bring forward solutions that can make a real difference.
