The Children’s Prize is an open online competition with a mission to advance child health and survival by insisting on impact and data-driven interventions. The Prize administrators search for an impactful project that aligns with the Foundation’s goals, has a measured reduction in child mortality, and significant experience in the field.
The Children’s Prize is awarded to scientifically-minded individuals with a passion for global child health and a strong commitment to verify the impact of their work. Between 2013 and 2017, the Prize has awarded over $1,700,000.00 to such individuals and organizations across the globe.

Majority of these deaths can be attributed to treatable causes, infectious diseases and neonatal complications being responsible for the vast majority of under-five deaths globally. According to the latest estimates by WHO and the Maternal and Child Epidemiology Estimation Group, of the 5.3 million deaths in children under five that occurred in 2018, about half were caused by infectious diseases and conditions such as pneumonia, diarrhoea, malaria, and birth defects.
The main killers of children under age five in 2018 included preterm birth complications (35%), intrapartum-related complications (24%), sepsis (15%), congenital abnormalities (11%), pneumonia/diarrhoea/tetanus (7%). Almost half of all under-five deaths are attributable to nutrition related factors, while more than 80 percent of neonatal deaths occur among newborn infants of low birth weights in the highest burden settings.
