Closing Date: 25.9 2018. 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. Successful proposals will be awarded grants of up to CAD $100,000 for a period of up to 12 months.
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.
