Open Call for Gender Equity Project Applications: New Round of Funding is now Open!

Deadline: 7-Jul-24

The Bloomberg Philanthropies Data for Health Initiative Global Grants Program (GGP) is launching a new round of funding for projects that specifically focus on gender inequities in public health.

This funding call supports projects that will improve the use and dissemination of sex and gender data for decision making and policy change. Applications should focus on integrating gender equity in one of the following core areas: civil registration and vital statistics, data use for decision-making, and cancer registration.

The Global Grants Program (GGP) supports focused, results-oriented projects that improve public health data in the priority areas of the Data for Health Initiative so that governments are equipped with the tools and systems to collect and use data effectively.

  • Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS)
    • Enhancing CRVS Governance and Coordination
    • Improving Notification and Registration of Vital Events
    • Improving Medical Certification of Cause‐of‐Death
    • Instituting or improving ICD coding
    • Implementing Verbal Autopsy
    • Improving Vital Statistics analysis, publication, dissemination
    • CRVS Legal and Regulatory Review and Reform
  • Data Impact 
    • Indicator development
    • Data dashboards
