solutions that make healthy eating and healthy lifestyles affordable and convenient. By addressing critical undernutrition at home and with women, the Solvers have played a vital role in the health of mothers, their children, and future generations."

"Ensuring delivery of critical nutrients to women of childbearing age in developing countries is an issue that is complex and difficult to scale," said InnoCentive CEO Dwayne Spradlin. "We are delighted that we were able to engage our Solver network in seeking answers to this problem."

Having announced the winning solutions, Scientists Without Borders will now work with the Solvers and additional partners to advance the ideas proposed so that they can be translated into viable and scalable interventions. Scientists Without Borders will also publish the winning solutions on its web platform so that they are openly available to additional innovators or collaborators who can build upon or help advance them.

In addition to partner challenges like its Maternal Health and Nutrition Challenge, Scientists Without Borders also enables user-generated challenges framed by any individual or entity to be posted on its platform and broadcast to its worldwide user base and partner network for assistance in identifying solutions. Scientists Without Borders is in the process of developing a unique fund to attach incentives and prizes to select user-generated challenges to help support and promote the grassroots identification of important global development and implementation challenges and solutions from the widest array of stakeholders possible.
