Improving Access to and Use of Safe and Appropriate Cesarean Section

Improving Access to and Use of Safe and Appropriate Cesarean Section Deadline: 2020-04-22
Award: $100,000
Open to: Everyone*

Cesarean section (CS) is a life-saving procedure for mother and newborn. However, too often c-section is not available, is provided without adequate quality, or is provided when not medically indicated - all dimensions that lead to maternal and newborn mortality and morbidity. We see an opportunity to nurture the field to identify and demonstrate feasibility of interventions to address challenges related to safe, timely, and appropriate cesarean section in low and middle-income countries.

Interventions addressing more than one challenge (e.g. quality and access) are encouraged. Applications should clearly state which of these three challenges is being targeted and provide clear rationale for why the intervention is likely to address the challenge.
