Grants to USA, Canada, and International government agencies, nonprofit organizations, businesses, and academic institutions to improve fetal and maternal health and safety in eligible regions. Funding is intended to increase access to and improve the quality and safety of medically indicated cesarean sections. Additionally, the Foundation seeks to reduce the rates of non-medically indicated cesarean section. Proposed activities should be implemented in Sub-Saharan Africa or South Asia (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh).
The Foundation seeks to identify and demonstrate the feasibility of interventions to address challenges related to safe, timely, and appropriate cesarean section in low and middle income countries. Proposals are invited for interventions to address the following challenges related to the cesarean section:
Interventions addressing more than one challenge (e.g. quality and access) are encouraged. The Foundation is particularly interested in geographies with high fertility and weak health systems that will face challenges to ensure the provision of safe c-sections can keep pace with medical need, and will thus consider applications proposing activities to be implemented in Sub-Saharan Africa or South Asia (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh).
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation seeks to make Seed Grants to generate proof of concept of novel interventions together with Validation Grants to generate further evidence of feasibility at a larger scale for existing interventions.
All applications should:
