Judging Criteria

Solutions submitted by 18 April 2021 will be evaluated by the judging panel. To select the Challenge finalists, judges will independently evaluate solutions using the judging criteria. Each solution is evaluated by several judges. Challenge finalists will be announced by 31 May 2021. Finalists will participate in private interviews with the judging panel on 10 & 11 June 2021. Winners will be announced on 25 June 2021.

Judges score solutions using the following criteria on a four point scale: 1) strongly disagree, 2) somewhat disagree, 3) somewhat agree, 4) strongly agree. 


Solution uses data, digital tools and/or analytics to identify, respond to, or recover from health emergencies.

Potential for Impact

Solution has a reasonable and measurable plan to prevent, mitigate, or promote recovery from a health emergency, particularly for vulnerable populations. The solution also provides a public good.


Solution implementation is feasible, and the team has a reasonable plan for operational sustainability and measurable results that can be proven to work. 

Innovative Approach

Solution includes a new technology or a new application of technology; a business/policy model, process, or cross-sectorial approach that relies on technology to be successful.


Solution can be equitably scaled to improve the lives of more people, across geographical, sociocultural, or sectorial borders.
