Global Grand Challenges – Innovations in Eliminating Neglected Tropical Diseases

Global Grand Challenges has partnered with Kikundi, a community of practice for Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTD) program managers in Africa, to identify areas for transformational innovation in service of national NTD programs.

We invite proposals that will address one or more of the following areas :

  • Methods to rapidly map NTDs, including integrated mapping
  • Methods to better target existing interventions
  • Strategies to target subgroups routinely missed by programs
  • Approaches to vector surveillance
  • Integrated surveillance that leverages other health surveillance platforms
  • Strategies for post-elimination surveillance, including cross-border surveillance.

Global Grand Challenges is looking for proposals that :

  • Are led by institutions based in sub-Saharan Africa or South Asia (other global partners may be included but at least 80% of funding should go to sub-Saharan Africa or South Asia)
  • Demonstrate partnership with national NTD programs
  • Propose innovations and applications that are scalable
  • Have a plan for how the proposed solution would be tested or validated, and report its impact on NTD elimination goals and program efficiency

We will not consider proposals that:

  • Do not include a lead investigator from an NTD-endemic country
  • Do not consider explicit collaboration with endemic country governments, government NTD programs and/or partners
  • Focus on current NTD intervention delivery or piloting of tools already used by NTD programs
  • Do not outline a clear path forward to scale and sustainable impact


Closing date : Jan 13, 2022, 11:30 am PST

Funding : up to USD $200,000
