  • Paper as enabling platform for cell-based assays for basic research and medical diagnostics in resource-limited environments
  • Development of non-invasive diagnostic device for Diabetes
  • Development and evaluation of a tablet-based, community health worker delivered HIV/STI prevention intervention for women living in internally displaced persons camps in Leogane, Haiti
  • Revamping an old tool: point-of-care molecular diagnostics in blood capillary tubes
  • The fetal heart monitor project human energy to save lives
  • Kumasi & Accra project to prevent AIDS (KAPPA): A social network-based intervention to prevent HIV among men who have sex with men
  • New therapeutic drug combinations for tuberculosis treatment.

    "When I ran the in the Olympic Torch Relay with my wife Sandra, we felt a sense of pride in Canada as we had never felt before," says Joseph L. Rotman, Chair of Grand Challenges Canada. "I feel the same sense of pride about these outstanding Canadian Rising Stars in Global Health who demonstrate the leadership Canadians can and do contribute to the international community."

    Says Dr. Peter A. Singer, Chief Executive Officer of Grand Challenges Canada: "These innovators are dedicated to bringing change to the world's poorest countries. They believe Canada has a leadership role in improving health conditions in the developing world. Collectively they are a source of pride for our country."

    "We are enabling Canadians to make their contribution to global health challenges, in collaboration with colleagues in low- and middle-income countries. Grand Challenges Canada is just beginning to tap that potential," says Dr. Singer.

    In a first for a Canadian grant application process, these innovators each produced a short video to explain their ideas to Canadians. These videos are as creative as the ideas proposed, showing our innovators in a new engaging light. To watch the videos visit '/>"/>
