Crowdfunding: Improving Health in Africa and Beyond

Giving birth shouldn’t be a matter of life or death but in many countries in Africa, and here in the U.S., it can be. Even with access to advanced technology and knowledge, solvable health issues are still a problem, in Africa and across the world. As part of a national call for submissions, the Show You Care Video Contest, we asked thousands of people to tell us about the urgent health problems, like maternal health, they see in the world and how they’d solve them. Now we’ll discuss those issues, and incredible solutions to health challenges made possible in Africa and beyond by harnessing the power of the crowd with CaringCrowd®, a crowdfunding platform sponsored by Johnson & Johnson.
