Call for Letters of Interest: The 2012 Innovation Working Group Catalytic Funding Competition

Deadline: 26 March 2012

The mHealth Alliance, in partnership with the Innovation Working Group, the UN Secretary-General’s Every Woman Every Child global strategy and the Norwegian Development Cooperation Agency (Norad) have issued a Call for Letters of Interest (LOI) for the 2012 mHealth for Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health Competition for catalytic funding.

The main purpose of this catalytic funding, which is disbursed over a two-year period, is to support promising mHealth programs with proof of efficacy as well as sustainable business plans to go to scale and to strengthen the evidence base for mHealth for maternal, newborn, and child health in developing countries.

The mHealth Alliance, in conjunction with the World Health Organization (WHO), will create a learning agenda between all projects to help advance the field as well as provide technical support tailored to each grantee.

The LOI is due by 26 March 2012, 11:59pm EST.
