Saving Lives at Birth Round 8 Broad Agency Announcement (BAA)
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, and the Korea International Cooperation Agency invite global problem solvers to answer their eighth 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 health care during pregnancy, childbirth, and the early postnatal period, especially the first 48 hours after birth. Globally, an expansive pipeline of audacious maternal and newborn health innovations has emerged over the past seven years. In Round 8, the Saving Lives at Birth Partners seek to catalyze scale and sustainability of the most promising solutions that are transitioning to scale.
