Stars in Global Health: Round 10 - Stars in Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights
For More Information
Through this Stars in Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights Request for Proposals, Grand Challenges Canada seeks bold ideas for products, services and implementation models that could transform how persistent challenges in sexual and reproductive health and rights are addressed in low- and middle-income countries. The bold ideas are expected to improve the provision and use of comprehensive sexual and reproductive health services (e.g. contraception; comprehensive sexuality education; safe abortion, where legal; and menstrual hygiene management). Of particular interest to Grand Challenges Canada are innovations that improve the prevention of and response to sexual and gender-based violence, and to child, early, and forced marriage, so that women and girls are empowered and have greater influence over their lives and futures.
Successful proposals will be awarded seed grants for one year to develop and test the proposed innovation. By the end of the seed grant, innovators are expected to have demonstrated proof of concept of the idea, developed a plan for scale and sustainability, and attracted interest from key stakeholders and partners needed to proceed along a path to scale and sustainability. Successful innovators will be invited to apply for Transition to Scale funding.
Note: All implementation activities must occur in eligible low and middle-income countries.
Grand Challenges Canada aims to award approximately 80 seed grants in this round. Approximately two-thirds of the awardees will be from low- and middle-income countries, with one-third from Canada.
