Innovation-to-Scale: Call for Proposals for Accelerated, High-impact, and Sustainable Scale-up of Innovations for Saving Mothers and Newborns at Birth

Initiative: Global Financing Facility

Applications Open: 
March 18, 2019 to April 30, 2019
Description: 

The Global Financing Facility (GFF), in partnership with Laerdal Global Health and the Government of Norway, is pleased to announce a Call for Proposals from organizations which can accelerate uptake of proven innovations to reduce maternal and newborn mortality around the time of birth and in the immediate postnatal period. In collaboration with national governments, the goal is to demonstrate and document how accelerated and sustainable delivery of such innovations will help countries achieve the life-saving impacts required to meet ambitious maternal and newborn mortality targets and, through this, facilitate further implementation across relevant GFF countries.

Five grants are expected to be awarded through this Call, each with an expected implementation period of three years from inception of activities. Each grant is expected to be up to US$5 million, and funding may be provided in multiple tranches.
