Request For Proposal 2014 - GCC: Integrated Innovations to Improve Treatments and Expand Access to Care - Round 3

Posted by Jamal Fida Wednesday, October 16, 2013 0 comments
Closing Date: January 9,2014.

Grand Challenges Canada seeks bold ideas for products, services, policies, or implementation models that address one (or more) of the following challenges in low-resource settings of low- or middle-income countries:
§  Integrating screening and core packages of services into routine primary healthcare
§  Reducing the cost and improve the supply of effective medications
§  Providing effective and affordable community-based care and rehabilitation
§  Improve children’s access to evidence-based care by trained health providers
§  Develop effective treatments for use by non-specialists, including lay health workers with minimal training
§  Incorporate functional impairment and disability into assessment
§  Develop mobile and IT technologies (such as telemedicine) to increase access to evidence-based care. 

Grand Challenges Canada seeks bold ideas with real-world impact that also have the potential to be scaled up. These ideas should represent innovative, affordable, and evidence-based products, services or policies. Innovative approaches and sound evaluation are expected to test how to increase the number of people who have access to care and how to have the greatest measurable treatment outcome for each person reached.

There are two funding streams for applicants:
1. Seed grants: support the development and validation of innovative ideas to improve treatments and expand access to care for mental disorders, offering up to $250,000 CAD each over a maximum of two (2) years. Projects are expected to demonstrate proof of concept by the end of the grant that the innovative idea is likely to have sustainable impact at scale, i.e., provide on-the-ground evidence of the impact it may have on an individual person and how it may be feasibly implemented in the target region.

2. Transition-to-scale grants: support the refinement, testing, and implementation of innovative solutions that have already achieved proof of concept to bring them toward scale, offering up to $1 million CAD in matched funding over a maximum of three (3) years. Projects are expected to demonstrate real-world impact on mental health with an approach that increases the intervention reach and has strong potential for sustainable impact at scale.
