Projects That Work


Welcome to the Projects That Work competition application. Projects That Work is a feature of The Network: Towards Unity for Health (TUFH) annual conference. The 2018 conference will be held August 16 -20 in Limerick, Ireland. The theme of the conference is Community Empowerment for Health: A Multi-Sector Approach.

Please note: If your project is less than three years old, it is not eligible for this competition.

  • Importance of the problem to improving health
  • Evidence of impact
  • Sustainability
  • Generalizability
  • Relevance of project to education
  • Innovation
  • Overall impressions
Final selection of approximately five winners may also consider geographic distribution for diversity.
