Saving Lives at Birth in Low-Resource Settings Grant
 

The Board has earmarked 50% of the annual appropriations through 2020 (i.e. half of annual expected grants of NOK 30 mill, equaling USD 3,5 mill) for projects related to Saving Lives at Birth.

The support will be focused on practically oriented projects helping achieve the UN Sustainability Goal no 3 (that in 2015 replaced the previous MDGs 4 and 5), aiming at

  • Reducing infant and child mortality by 2/3 from 2010 to 2030
  • Reducing maternal deaths by 2/3 from 2010 to 2030

The Board particularly welcomes applications relating to:

Innovative approaches to more efficient education and implementation

Collaborative initiatives, such as the Helping Babies Survive and Helping Mothers Survive and Survive & Thrive Global Development Alliances

Projects in selected focus countries; Tanzania, Ethiopia, Malawi, Bangladesh, India, Nepal

Guidelines to Applicants

The Board expects to fund up to 20 projects per year, with up to USD 50,000.- per award. Higher amounts than this may be awarded to regional initiatives, or particular educational or collaborative initiatives.

The regular application form should also be used for applications in the Saving Lives at Birth category. For more significant initiatives, applying for an amount beyond USD 50,000.- it may be practical to first submit a Concept Proposal to the Foundation. There is no particular form for this, but the proposal should be limited to a maximum of 6 pages.

In considering applications for projects in developing countries, the Board will be prioritizing projects that beyond a local impact have the potential to document long term practical value, and stimulate developments also in other regions/countries through publication of results in peer reviewed journals.  Please note that projects to strengthen a local health system, will not qualify.
