GFF-call-for-proposals-banner

The Global Financing Facility (GFF; www.globalfinancingfacility.org), in partnership with Laerdal Global Health (www.laerdalglobalhealth.com) and the Government of Norway (norad.no/en/), 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 $5 million, and funding may be provided in multiple tranches.

 

The deadline for initial proposals is April 30, 2019, at 11:59 Eastern Time. Received proposals will be considered by a review committee established by GFF, and responses will be sent early June, 2019.

Any and all companies engaged in global health technology research and development are encouraged to apply.

While innovative medical technologies have the potential to impact the lives of patients and health care workers worldwide, significant barriers keep many resource-constrained populations from accessing these technologies.
