Saving Lives at Birth (2011-2016) is a USAID partnership with Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the World Bank, Grand Challenges Canada, the Government of Norway, and the Department for International Development (DFID). It is a grant competition that seeks innovative prevention and treatment approaches to the health problems of pregnant women and newborn children in rural, low-resource settings. There have been four rounds of calls for innovation and in the first round alone, the partners received over 600 submissions from which they awarded 21 seed grants and 3 transition-to-scale grants. The second round awarded 12 seed grants and 3 transition-to scale grants. 22 awards were given on the third round, and 30 awards were given on the fourth and final round. The total investment is expected to reach at least USD 50 million over the entire life of the partnership.
