Last year, USAID, the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Grand Challenges Canada, and DFID provided 24 grants to innovative projects to improve maternal and child health through Saving Lives at Birth: A Grand Challenge for Development. This year, 500 submissions have been narrowed down to 77 finalists that will be highlighted at the Development XChange in Seattle, WA in mid-July.
In addition to the selections made by the expert committee, a People’s Choice Award will be given based on public voting. You can review the 77 innovations and vote for the best on the Saving Lives at Birth website.
