New Funding Opportunities from Grand Challenges Canada

new 2017-07-12

Do you have a bold idea for improving reproductive, maternal, newborn and/or child health?

Grand Challenges Canada, funded by the Government of Canada, has launched a new open funding opportunity open to applicants in low- and middle-income countries and Canada: Stars in Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health (RMNCH)

Stars in Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn and Child Health seeks bold ideas for products, services and implementation models that could transform how persistent challenges in reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health are addressed in low- and middle-income countries. Successful proposals will be awarded seed grants of up to $100,000 CAD over a maximum of 12 to 18 months

Of particular interest to Grand Challenges Canada are innovations to improve reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health in humanitarian contexts, notably among internally displaced and refugee populations, as well as innovations that improve the sexual and reproductive health and rights of women and girls, so that they are empowered and have greater influence over their lives and futures.This includes focusing on innovations that:

- Overcome the chronic challenges of extreme poverty, weak infrastructure, and poor or absent governance structures that leave citizens without adequate care and vulnerable to further shocks,
- Protect against gender-based or sexual violence in humanitarian settings
- Overcome challenges of access by service providers to populations in fragile settings
- Enhance monitoring and evaluation of health outcomes in humanitarian settings
- Are from countries hosting the largest numbers of refugees, e.g., Turkey, Pakistan, Lebanon, Iran, Ethiopia or Jordan

Deadline for applications: August 3, 2017, at 3:00PM EDT

For further information, please see the link www.grandchallenges.ca/funding-opportunities.
