Grand Challenges Canada: Stars in Sexual & Reproductive Health and Rights

Through this Stars in Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights Request for Proposals, Grand Challenges Canada seeks bold ideas for products, services and implementation models that could transform how persistent challenges in sexual and reproductive health and rights are addressed in low- and middle-income countries. The bold ideas are expected to improve the provision and use of comprehensive sexual and reproductive health services (e.g. contraception; comprehensive sexuality education; safe abortion, where legal; and menstrual hygiene management). Of particular interest to Grand Challenges Canada are innovations that improve the prevention of and response to sexual and gender-based violence, and to child, early, and forced marriage, so that women and girls are empowered and have greater influence over their lives and futures.
