Ashoka and the Philips Foundation are working together in a multi-year program to accelerate access to healthcare worldwide by linking social entrepreneurship with industry skills. By connecting leading social entrepreneurs with experts in their field, we aim to accelerate their mission to provide access to care for disadvantaged communities.
