The idea is to gather contributions that are both theoretically grounded and offer pragmatic solutions to a relevant international development problem stemming from an interdisciplinary collaboration between 3 to 5 enrolled master students from anywhere in the world.

The ADG contest offers an opportunity for master students to use theoretical tools to
frame a development issue and offer a creative, feasible and potentially efficient solution to address the identified vulnerability.

The Shanghai Declaration emphasized that health and well-being are essential to achieve sustainable development. While significant advances have been made in reducing child mortality, improving maternal health or fighting HIV for instance (WHO, 2018), many more efforts are needed to fully eradicate a wide range of diseases and address many different persistent and emerging health issues.
