Priority

Improving access to physical and mental healthcare is by far the biggest challenge tack-led by 2021 GGS graduates. Their most innovative solutions are aimed at enabling pa-tients and their carers to manage therapies and rehabilitation treatments at home, as well as using digital platforms to enable doctors to diagnose and monitor hard to reach patients more efficiently. The majority of solutions, as previous editions of the GGS have also shown, focus on the most vulnerable, like children, those living with chronic illness and disabilities, and the elderly.
