2 breakthrough innovations to address maternal and newborn deaths in Sub-Saharan Africa
Date:11/22/2011

verage the persuasive powers of progressive Islamic leaders to change opinions of more traditional leaders.

"The Development Research and Project Centre's proposal is aimed directly at those religious leaders to change their negative messages about maternity and newborn care," said Aminu Gamawa, Leadership Development Mechanism Fellow at the Development Research and Projects Centre. "We want to improve the survival of women and children in Northern Nigeria, which has the highest maternal and neonatal death rate in the country as well as one of the highest in the world."

Each program will receive a $250,000 seed grant from the Saving Lives at Birth partnership, which includes Grand Challenges Canada, USAID, the Government of Norway, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the World Bank.

"With the support and leadership of the Government of Canada, this innovative initiative from Grand Challenges Canada is contributing to our overall maternal and child health efforts. I commend the Saving Lives at Birth partners for their dedication," said the Honourable Beverley J. Oda, Minister of International Cooperation.

"To deliver dramatic health results for women and children who may never step foot inside a hospital, we must harness the creativity of innovators and partners across the globe." Said Rajiv Shah, USAID Administrator. "By doing so, we can increase the efficiency, sustainability and effectiveness of our work."

"Grand Challenges Canada is proud to be working with our consortium partners, Canada's International Research Centre (IDRC) and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) to support this very important work in Sub-Saharan Africa." Said Joseph L. Rotman, Chair of Grand Challenges Canada, "It takes bold innovation of all types to make substantial changes in the health and well-being of women and infants."
