Saving Lives at Birth Round 7 Broad Agency Announcement (BAA)
The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the Government of Norway, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Grand Challenges Canada (funded by the Government of Canada), the U.K.'s Department for International Development (DFID), and the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) invite global problem solvers to answer their seventh call for groundbreaking prevention and treatment approaches for pregnant women and newborns in poor, hard-to-reach communities around the time of childbirth.
Specifically, the challenge seeks to identify and develop transformative approaches that integrate scientific and technological advancements, better service delivery models, and improved "demand side" innovations that empower pregnant women and their families to practice healthy behaviors and be aware of and access healthcare during pregnancy, childbirth, and the early postnatal period, especially the first 2 days after birth. Round 7 will continue the increased focus on advancing the most successful and transformational innovations as they transition to scale.
Learn more and answer the call for innovative ideas.
