Health Presentation Transcript

  • 1.  
  • 2. Social Entrepreneur: Effects & Development
    • The terms social entrepreneur and social entrepreneurship were used first in the literature on social change in the 1960s and 1970s. [
    • Today, non-profits and non-governmental organizations, foundation, government, and individuals also play the role to promote, fund, and advise social entrepreneurs around the planet.
  • 3. Social Entrepreneur: Actions
    • Social entrepreneurship as a practice that integrates economic and social value creation has a long heritage and a global presence.
    • The concept of social entrepreneurship is still poorly defined and its boundaries to other fields of study remain fuzzy. While to some this may appear to be a problem, we see it as a unique opportunity for researchers from different fields and disciplines, such as entrepreneurship, sociology and organizational theory, to challenge and rethink central concepts and assumptions.

    • Global Health Program - They focus on the health problems that have a major impact in developing countries but get too little attention and funding. Where proven tools exist, they support sustainable ways to improve their delivery, and where they don't, they invest in research and development of new interventions, such as vaccines, drugs, and diagnostics.
