The Laerdal Foundation for Acute Medicine was established in 1980 to provide financial support to practically oriented research and development in acute medicine. In recent years there has also been an added focus on projects related to saving lives at birth in low-resource settings. The Foundation wishes to contribute to an understanding of practical needs within both of these areas.
The Board has earmarked 50% of the annual appropriations through 2020 (i.e. half of annual expected grants of NOK 30 mill, equaling USD 3,5 mill) for projects related to Saving Lives at Birth. The support will be focused on practically oriented projects helping achieve the UN Sustainability Goal no 3 (that in 2015 replaced the previous MDGs 4 and 5), aiming at: (1) Reducing infant and child mortality by 2/3 from 2010 to 2030; and (2) Reducing maternal deaths by 2/3 from 2010 to 2030. The Board particularly welcomes applications relating to: (1) Innovative approaches to more efficient education and implementation; (2) Collaborative initiatives, such as the Helping Babies Survive and Helping Mothers Survive and Survive & Thrive Global Development Alliances; and (3) Projects in selected focus countries; Tanzania, Ethiopia, Malawi, Bangladesh, India, Nepal.
Eligible applicants are NGOs.
Actions must take place in Tanzania, Ethiopia, Malawi, Bangladesh, India, Nepal.
The Board expects to fund up to 20 projects per year, with up to $50,000 per award.
Regular application deadlines are April 1 and October 1 each year. Applications should be forwarded to the following e-mail: post(a)laerdalfoundation.org.
