Saving Lives at Birth (Round 6)

Offered by Department for International Development, Grand Challenges Canada, Korea International Cooperation Agency, Norad, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and U.S. Agency for International Development as part of Saving Lives at Birth

The goal of this program is to find the tools and approaches to help mothers and newborns during their most vulnerable hours. We seek groundbreaking prevention and treatment approaches for pregnant women and newborns in poor, hard-to-reach communities around the time of delivery. This is the period when the majority of maternal and newborn deaths occur and the population that has been the most difficult to reach.
