USAID ReachHealth Innovation Accelerator 2022

Supporting local innovators for solutions to family planning and teen pregnancy challenges

About the program

Access to family planning commodities and services continues to be a challenge for many women and families in the country. At the same time, teenage pregnancy rates are on the rise and are considered a national emergency in the Philippines. In the era of COVID-19, last mile delivery for health services, including reproductive and mental health, has become even more challenging. There is a need for more innovative solutions to break the stigma surrounding reproductive health and provide more reliable, affordable, and accessible family planning commodities and services. 

The USAID ReachHealth Innovation Accelerator aims to aid and support innovators to scale solutions to address family planning and teenage pregnancy.

Our Objectives

Underscoring the importance of long term sustainability and the need to build upon the emerging local innovation ecosystem in the Philippines, USAID ReachHealth has partnered with Villgro Philippines to launch the ReachHealth Innovation Accelerator with the following objectives in mind:


  • To provide enterprises with technical assistance and capacity building support, which includes business mentorship, market access partnerships, and linkages and exposure to innovative models and solutions

  • To share knowledge and expertise by holding peer-to-peer learning sessions through which participants can share valuable insights and best case practices from their experience as entrepreneurs
  • To develop strategic partnerships to leverage further support for the growing sexual and reproductive health sector and advance long-term goals of USAID ReachHealth at large

What's Inside

The USAID ReachHealth Innovation Accelerator is a 5-month program intended to develop and nurture innovations that seek to address unmet needs in family planning and teenage pregnancy.

During the program, teams will get to showcase scalable and effective ideas that will address challenges in the sector. The winning team will be provided capital of up to USD 20,000, and be connected to potential funders to continue to develop their products and services. Aside form this, teams will gain access to business mentoring, to upskilling through a high-impact curriculum, and to working capital products.
