Afya Plan got a chance to attend the 2018 Grand Challenges Annual Meeting and had the opportunity to showcase the project during a poster session where we won the "Most innovative Project" Prize ! .

The Grand Challenges Annual Meeting is aimed to accelerate the translation of innovation to impact to address the world’s most urgent global health and development problems. The meeting is a forum for researchers to share their work, learn about cutting-edge advances in the field and build collaborations with other investigators and organizations. The meeting partially overlaped with the 10th World Health Summit and we had a chance to attend the World Health Summit in a joint session with the grand challenges annual meeting. This conference was hosted by the German Federal Ministry of Education & Research, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Grand Challenges Canada, United States Agency for International Development and Wellcome. "The complexity of our most urgent global problems – extreme poverty, the persistence and spread of disease, feeding a growing world – requires that we invest in science and put our best minds to work on finding solutions." - Bill Gates.
