Call for proposals to scale up innovations to save women and newborns’ lives
The Global Financing Facility in partnership with the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation and Laerdal Global Health, has announced a call for proposals to support countries with high maternal and newborn mortality to scale up proven innovations to reduce maternal and newborn mortality around and just after birth
“The private sector is helping countries leapfrog and tackle bottlenecks in their health systems. The Global Financing Facility is proud to work alongside Laerdal Global Health and other GFF partners to help countries scale up innovations for women, children and adolescents
Mariam Claeson, Director of the GFF.
In-country implementing organizations can submit proposals to "advance innovations for maternal and newborn mortality that are evidence-based, proven, and can be effectively delivered in low-resource conditions to achieve quality and improved outcomes at scale". Through this call, five proposals are expected to be awarded grants, each up to US$5 million over three years.
