Recently on SocialFinance.ca, one of the premier spaces for analysis, reports and news on social innovation and social entrepreneurship, there was a repost from Pioneers Post on a published interview with Jacaranda Health's Nick Pearson. It is a very inspiring article where you can learn not only about the intersections between health and innovation but also about maternal health in Nairobi, Kenya, where this social enterprise is based.

Jacaranda describes itself as "building a network of private maternity clinics in resource-poor settings." It aims to address an environment in which many women and babies die in preventable childbirth complications. Thus, affordability is one of the key tenets to making something like this work.
