Call for proposals: Grand Challenges Canada – Stars in Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn and Child Health

The Grand Challenges Canada, funded by the Government of Canada, is seeking bold ideas with big impact from the best and brightest talent, for products, services and implementation models that could transform how persistent challenges in Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (RMNCH) are addressed in low- and middle-income countries. 

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.

Successful proposals will be awarded seed grants of up to CAD $100,000 for up to 12– 18 months to develop and test the proposed innovation.

Deadline: 3 August 2017
