About the Opportunity:
For the year 2022 the Child Health Foundation (CHF) wishes to receive proposals from registered non-governmental organizations (NGO)s) for innovative research or innovative service projects directed at improving the health and well-being of new-born infants during their first year of life. This is a time of high risk for babies, and they believe that local groups may have innovative ideas on improving the health, survival and wellbeing of these vulnerable infants.
CHF will consider a range of technologies and approaches including both biomedical and social science projects that show promise, are innovative, and may have wide-spread application. Projects that involve only general medical care of children, but without innovative aspects, will not be considered.
The projects should be done within one year and should be able to document measurable results. The projects may address child health issues in a developing country or in the United States. The projects will be reviewed by the Program Committee of the Child Health Foundation. Outside reviewers will be used if necessary.
The maximum budget for these projects is $5,000 over a one-year period.
Successful applications receive $4,000 when the project is scheduled to start and another $1,000 upon receipt of a final report.
Organizations must be certified, that is, hold registration in the country of origin.
