Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation: Grand Challenges Explorations on Ensuring Effective Health Supply Chains

Deadline: 3 May 2017

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is inviting proposals for the latest round of Grand Challenges Exploration on the topic “Health Systems Strengthening: Ensuring Effective Health Supply Chains”.

In 2015, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) were adopted by countries focused on 17 critical goals to ensure a “better world with no one left behind” by 2030. SDG 3 represents health and focuses on ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being at all ages. It includes ambitious goals to end preventable deaths of newborns and children under 5 years of age, end the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria, ensure universal access to reproductive health care services, and achieve universal health coverage and access to safe, effective, quality and affordable essential medicines and vaccines for all.

The health supply chain is comprised of people, processes, policies, technology and resources to ensure the right products reach the right place in the right condition. When effective, the supply chain is “the backbone” for access to safe and effective health products, and supports the goals of eliminating AIDS, TB and malaria, ending childhood vaccine-preventable deaths, and ensuring universal access to reproductive health services. An efficient supply chain also safeguards the significant financial investments on the procurement of health products by donors and country governments – estimates on donor-financed health products alone range from $7 – 10 billion dollars per year procured for low- and middle-income countries (LMIC).

Grant Size

Initial grants will be US $100,000 each, and projects showing promise will have the opportunity to receive additional funding of up to US $1 million.

Eligibility Criteria

GCE is open to both foreign and domestic organizations, including non-profit organizations, for-profit companies, international organizations, government agencies, and academic institutions.

How to Apply

Applications must be submitted online via given website.
