Payoke’s project Voices of Hope wins MSD HealthNest prize
27/03/2019 HealthNest by MSD, the incubator of health wisdom ideas in Belgium, announces which ideas submitted have won the coaching program. After a crowdvoting and a pitch, the ideas ‘Voices of Hope’, ‘Comunicare’ and ‘More Health for every child’ emerged as winners.
Payoke’s Voices of Hope offers solutions to improve access to healthcare services for victims of trauma in general, and victims of human trafficking in particular, by reducing language barriers through improved interpretation and cultural mediation services in the medical setting.
« When services are not offered in a language victims can understand clearly, the services are, in actual fact, inaccessible to them. » says Klaus Vanhoutte, Director of Payoke. MORE
