"Even the most effective health interventions can only save lives if they reach the people who need them. Concern Worldwide's commitment to seeking innovation from diverse, non-traditional sources will be a key ingredient in the success of this programme," said a statement released by Jaime Sepzlveda, Director of the Integrated Health Solutions Development programme at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Concern Worldwide CEO Tom Arnold said that the main aim was to test new ideas to improve the state of the world as a whole.
