The U.S. Agency for International Development (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 (DFID), and the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) invite global problem solvers to answer their seventh 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 healthcare during pregnancy, childbirth, and the early postnatal period, especially the first 2 days after birth. Round 7 will continue the increased focus on advancing the most successful and transformational innovations as they transition to scale.

Learn more and answer the call for innovative ideas.

Please help us spread the word and share this notice with a broad range of experts in a variety of disciplines. We are particularly interested in investing in and supporting approaches that integrate the latest behavior change approaches with scientific and/or technological advances and service delivery platforms into radical solutions for widespread impact on maternal and newborn health.

Help us spark transformational change and accelerate substantial and sustainable progress against maternal and newborn deaths and stillbirths at the community level. Together, we can transform insurmountable development challenges into solvable problems.
