Round 8 SL@B CALL FOR APPLICATIONS Social media toolkit

@GCDSavingLives @USAIDGH @GChallenges @NorwayMFA @GatesFoundation @DFID_UK @officialKOICA

Saving Lives at Birth: A Grand Challenge for Development has launched its eighth call for groundbreaking, sustainable innovations to save the lives of mothers and newborns in the hardest to reach corners of the world. In Round 8, Saving Lives at Birth seeks to catalyze scale and sustainability of the most promising solutions that bring together cutting-edge science and/or low-cost technologies, service delivery, and demand innovation in transformative new ways.

Saving Lives at Birth has mobilized the world’s brightest thinkers to address the critical issue of maternal and newborn health. Globally, an expansive pipeline of audacious maternal and newborn health innovations has emerged over the past seven years and to date, the Grand Challenge for Development has funded 116 unique innovations. In the eighth call for solutions, there will be an increased focus on advancing the most successful and transformational innovations as they transition to scale. This approach has been a critical part of the global effort to bring an end to the 303,000 maternal deaths, 2.7 million newborn deaths, and 2.6 million stillbirths that occur each year- a time when mothers and babies are most vulnerable and global progress in reducing mortality has been particularly poor. This gap in interventions is particularly acute in poor, underserved communities and among women who are disadvantaged

The program has begin taking applications, with submissions due by February 28th at 2pm EST.
