Laerdal Foundation: Saving Lives at Birth in Low-Resource Settings

Deadline: 1 October 2017

The Laerdal Foundation for Acute Medicine is currently accepting applications for its funding program for projects related to Saving Lives at Birth.

The support will be focused on practically oriented projects helping achieve the UN Sustainability Goal no 3 (that in 2015 replaced the previous MDGs 4 and 5), aiming at:

  • Reducing infant and child mortality by 2/3 from 2010 to 2030
  • Reducing maternal deaths by 2/3 from 2010 to 2030

Funding Information

  • The Board expects to fund up to 20 projects per year, with up to USD 50,000.- per award. Higher amounts than this may be awarded to regional initiatives, or particular educational or collaborative initiatives.
  • The regular application form should also be used for applications in the Saving Lives at Birth category. For more significant initiatives, applying for an amount beyond USD 50,000.- it may be practical to first submit a Concept Proposal to the Foundation.

Eligibility Criteria

  • The Board particularly welcomes applications relating to:
    • Innovative approaches to more efficient education and implementation
    • Collaborative initiatives, such as the Helping Babies Survive and Helping Mothers Survive and Survive & Thrive Global Development Alliances
    • Projects in selected focus countries; Tanzania, Ethiopia, Malawi, Bangladesh, India, Nepal
  • In considering applications for projects in developing countries, the Board will be prioritizing projects that beyond a local impact have the potential to document long term practical value, and stimulate developments also in other regions/countries through publication of results in peer reviewed journals.
  • The Board is likely to focus on relatively few projects, and prefer projects that can leverage new initiatives with support also from other sources. Practical experience of the applicant(s) to deal with the special challenges typically found in developing countries, and a strong commitment for participation also from local partners, are other factors that will be considered.

How to Apply

Interested applicants must download an application form from the given website.

Eligible Countries: Tanzania, Ethiopia, Malawi, Bangladesh, India, Nepal.
