Increasing Demand for Birth Registration Services

TAGS: Business/Entrepreneurship, Ideation

AWARD: $1,000 USD | DEADLINE: 12/14/12 | ACTIVE SOLVERS: 9 |

POSTED: 11/14/12

How to increase demand among indigenous families in Nicaragua for birth registration services for children below the age of one year? We are seeking novel solutions to create incentives for indigenous families living in remote areas to ensure they demand and use existing birth registration services. Focus is on creating demand for services that already exist. However, solutions can also include improvements on how government provide these services as an incentive in itself. We will award up to two (2) Solvers a US$ 500 award for this challenge. A single exceptional solution submitted with validation of technical feasibility may be awarded the entire US$ 1,000 prize.
