For the year 2022 the Child Health Foundation (CHF) wishes to receive proposals from registered non-governmental organizations (NGO)s) for innovative research or innovative service projects directed at improving the health and well-being of new-born infants during their first year of life. This is a time of high risk for babies, and we believe that local groups may have innovative ideas on improving the health, survival, and wellbeing of these vulnerable infants. Proposals for other types of projects will not be considered.
CHF will consider a range of technologies and approaches including both biomedical and social science projects that show promise, are innovative, and may have wide-spread application. Projects that involve only general medical care of children, but without innovative aspects, will not be considered. We assume that mothers and infants are receiving routine care through their standard health system including access to antenatal care, routine immunizations, assistance with breast feeding, oral hydration for diarrhea, and vitamin A supplements. Thus, CHF is looking for projects that describe unique settings or conditions that require innovative solutions.
Organizations must be certified, that is, hold registration in the country of origin and able to provide a credible reference.
Grant size: $5,000
Deadline: May 31, 2022
