Thank you for your interest in applying to this program. Amazon Web Services (AWS) is offering AWS Promotional Credit and technical expertise to selected institutions and companies addressing health disparities that impact underserved or underrepresented communities around the world. The program will support applications that develop culturally-responsive solutions to: 1) increase access to health services, 2) reduce disparities by addressing social determinants of health, 3) leverage data to promote equitable and inclusive systems of care, and 4) advance equity in diagnostics and screening.
An example of a culturally-responsive solution for underserved or underrepresented communities may include an app designed to offer tele-healthcare to Haitian Americans with the aim of increasing the diagnosis and treatment of hypertension. The app uses Haitian Creole, includes culturally-specific references and images, and services are offered by providers who understand community context. See the FAQ section for the expanded definition of terms.
