OPTions Initiative: Request for Proposals

Grand Challenges Canada (GCC) is currently accepting applications for its Options for Pregnancy Termination Innovation Initiative (OPTions Initiative). The OPTions Initiative seeks innovative and transformative approaches that put women, girls, and people with diverse sexual and gender identities in control of where, when and how they terminate their pregnancy. 

Applications are open through December 31, 2022 for seed grants of up to $400,000 CAD for innovations that seek to test and develop next-generation methods of pregnancy termination, menses induction or conception interruption. For this funding opportunity, GCC is prioritizing submissions from institutions based in Sub-Saharan Africa, however partnerships with institutions in other parts of the world are encouraged. For more information about the funding opportunity and to download a copy of the full RFP, click here (English version) or here (French version). 

In addition, GCC will be hosting an informational webinar to discuss this funding opportunity on Wednesday, October 19 from 4:00-5:00pm EAT. If you are interested in attending the webinar, please click here to register and get more information.
