Grand Challenges Brazil Launched
The Brazilian Ministry of Health and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation announced Grand Challenges Brazil, a partnership that will launch joint initiatives. This partnership builds on Brazil’s strong and widely-recognized commitment to health equity, its extensive health system, and its robust research networks and manufacturing capabilities.
The first joint initiative is a grant program taking a Grand Challenges-based approach and focusing on reducing the burden of preterm birth. The partnership will also encompass collaboration through Grand Challenges Explorations.
