Grant Opportunities from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Source: http://grandchallenges.org/
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is now inviting applications for three new Grand Challenges:

1. Putting Women and Girls at the Center of Development
This new Grand Challenge focuses on how to effectively reach and empower the most vulnerable women and girls to improve health and development – including economic – outcomes as well as gender equality.

2. Creating and Measuring Integrated Solutions for Healthy Birth, Growth, and Development (part of the All Children Thriving platform)
This new Grand Challenge focuses on new measurement tools and new combinations of approaches to ensure all children thrive – that they not only survive, but also have the chance to live healthy productive lives.

3. New Interventions for Global Health
This new Grand Challenge focuses on innovative concepts for vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics with the potential to be translated into safe, effective, affordable, and widely utilized interventions to protect against the acquisition, progression, or transmission of infectious diseases, or to provide a cure for infectious diseases, in resource‐limited settings.

Applications for these new challenges will be accepted from 4 November 2014 and the application deadline is 13 January 2015.

For links to more information on these challenges, please visit the grant opportunity page at http://grandchallenges.org/grant-opportunities.html a new homepage to support the next phase of Grand Challenges launched today with international partners at the 10th annual Grand Challenges meeting.
Note: Applications for the other Grand Challenges Explorations topics are still being accepted. These were announced last month and can be found on the same web page.
