Open Call: Innovations in Eliminating Neglected Tropical Diseases

Deadline: 13 Jan 2022

The Grand Challenges in Global Health (GCGH) is pleased to launch the grant program entitled “Innovations in Eliminating Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs)” to identify areas for transformational innovation in service of national NTD programs.

GCGH is inviting proposals that will address one or more of the following areas:

Methods to rapidly map NTDs, including integrated mapping
Methods to better target existing interventions
Strategies to target subgroups routinely missed by programs
Approaches to vector surveillance
Integrated surveillance that leverages other health surveillance platforms
Strategies for post-elimination surveillance, including cross-border surveillance.
Funding Information
Funding level: up to USD $200,000 for each project, with a grant term of up to 18 months depending on the scope of the project.

Eligibility Criteria
GCGH is looking for proposals that:

Are led by institutions, which could be ministries of health, based in sub-Saharan Africa (other global partners may be included but at least 80% of funding should go to sub-Saharan Africa)
Demonstrate partnership with national NTD programs
Propose innovations and applications that are scalable
Have a plan for how the proposed solution would be tested or validated, and report its impact on NTD elimination goals and program efficiency
They will not consider proposals that:

Do not include a lead investigator from an NTD-endemic country
Do not consider explicit collaboration with endemic country governments, government NTD programs and/or partners
Focus on current NTD intervention delivery or piloting of tools already used by NTD programs
Do not outline a clear path forward to scale and sustainable impact
