The European Microfinance Award is a prestigious annual €100,000 award, which attracts applications from financial service providers around the world that are innovating in a particular area of financial inclusion. The Award was launched in 2005 by the Luxembourg Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs – Directorate for Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Affairs, and is jointly organised by the European Microfinance Platform (e-MFP), the Luxembourg Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs, and the Inclusive Finance Network Luxembourg (InFiNe.lu), in cooperation with the European Investment Bank. It serves two parallel goals: rewarding excellence, and collecting and disseminating the most relevant practices for replication by others.

The European Microfinance Award 2021 on “Inclusive Finance and Health Care" highlights initiatives that facilitate access to quality and affordable health care for low-income communities.
