Open Call for Strengthening Modeling and Analytics Capacity and Ecosystem for Women’s Health

The Grand Challenges in Global Health (GCGH) is seeking applications for Strengthening Modeling and Analytics Capacity and Ecosystem for Women’s Health for innovative approaches to modeling women’s health issues or of broader health topics that incorporate a gender lens.

They are looking for projects with a 1-to-3-year timeline that will achieve at least one of the objectives:

  • Increase the number of trained modelers, especially women with gender expertise based in low-income and middle-income countries
  • Achieve a better understanding of issues that disproportionately affect women through modeling
  • Improve engagement with modeling approaches to support strategic planning and/or evaluation work

Ideally, proposals should also:

  • Bring together discrete modeling units across low-income and middle-income countries to share expertise
  • Foster innovation with data in the interest of their respective local communities and achieve equality in access to healthcare
  • Improve data collection, sharing, governance, regulatory compliance, and analysis processes to enable data-centered and gender-aware public health research and interventions
  • Explore and improve how to build and strengthen the interface of modeling with policy engagement leading to increased adoption of insights to yield impact.


  • Collaborative proposals that are led by investigators in low-income and middle-income countries (LMICs) – they particularly encourage applications from women-led organizations and applications involving projects led by women
  • Proposals that have the potential to have an impact on addressing women’s health issues within the proposed budget and timeframe of 1-to-3-years
  • Proposals that have timely access to necessary data. Focus on improving gender modeling capacity in women’s health in LMICs
  • Proposals that articulate how the project will lead to impact in the near term and how those benefits will be sustained past the lifetime of the project
  • Proposals that demonstrate engagement with local and/or regional decision-makers
  • Proposals that are driven by a shared commitment to open science, data sharing, and building collaboration and analysis infrastructure to enable discoveries that will benefit people everywhere
