Reducing the Burden of Preterm Birth

Premature_Birth_Milestone_46_shadow.jpg

The "Reducing the Burden of Preterm Birth" program seeks innovative research in biology, medical technology, delivery mechanisms, and behavior change that leads to high-impact prevention and treatment solutions for reducing the burden of preterm birth. Grants will be to Brazilian researchers, but partnerships with researchers in other countries are encouraged. Solutions developed through the Grand Challenges Brazil preterm birth program could have broad impact, both within Brazil and beyond its borders.


Great ideas come from everywhere.
