Laerdal Foundation launches Saving Lives at Birth in Low-Resource Settings Program

Laerdal Foundation launches Saving Lives at Birth in Low-Resource Settings Program


Deadline: 1-Apr-21

The Laerdal Foundation has launched the Saving Lives at Birth in Low-Resource Settings Program 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.
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.

The Board is likely to focus on relatively few projects, and prefer projects that can leverage new initiatives with support also from other sources. Practical experience of the applicant(s) to deal with the special challenges typically found in developing countries, and a strong commitment for participation also from local partners, are other factors that will be considered.
