Case competitions are increasing popular around the world as a way for students to exercise critical thinking skills using real world challenges. For this international, virtual competition, teams of four to six students will receive a challenge relating to a pressing global health problem. Teams will prepare a video of up to 10 minutes in English; proposing a realistic, well-designed, and innovative solution to the challenge. Teams will upload their videos to YouTube, Vimeo, Bilibili or a similar platform, and submit the link via email for judging by an international panel of APRU Global Health Program members and other global expert judges.
Three videos will be chosen for the final round, which will be held at the APRU Global Health Annual Conference in Shanghai, China, Oct 18-21, 2020. The winning team will be announced at the conference and a prize of US$500 will be awarded.
