Grand Challenges Canada - Stars in Global Health: Round 9

Stars in Global Health: Round 9

Stars in Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn and Child Health 

Grand Challenges Canada, funded by the Government of Canada, has launched a new 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.

Deadline: August 3, 2017 at 3:00 pm ET
