The Laerdal Foundation is inviting applications for the Saving Lives at Birth in Low-Resource Settings Program.
50 % of the annual appropriations have been earmarked for practically oriented projects that may help achieve the UN Sustainability Goal no 3, aiming at reducing both maternal and newborn mortality by 2/3 from 2010 to 2030.

Applications that go beyond a local impact and have the potential to document long term practical value and stimulate developments also in other regions/countries will be prioritized.
