MicroClinic Technologies is on a roll.

The Kenyan company made the short list of the 2014 Financial Times-International Finance Corp. Transformational Business Awards for ZiDi, a mobile application offering real-time access to health data as a way to improve diagnosis and treatment of common diseases that afflict women and children. It’s just one in a string of recognitions MicroClinic Technologies has received since winning one of the prizes under the first Healthcare Innovation Award in November 2013.

The Healthcare Innovation Award is a core part of the partnership between GlaxoSmithKline and Save the Children. Last year, five organizations from the developing world split the $1 million pot, with cash grants ranging from $100,000 to $400,000.

Speaking to Devex, Dr. Allan Pamba, vice president for East Africa at GSK, recalled a conversation with the people behind MicroClinic Technologies about the award’s impact on the organization.
