What: In 2011, the Saving Lives at Birth: A Grand Challenge For Development called upon the brightest minds across the globe to identify and scale up transformative prevention and treatment approaches in rural, low-resource settings for pregnant women and newborns around the time of birth. Building upon the success of the past seven years, at the beginning of this year, the program launched its seventh call and received an impressive set of applications that continue to push the boundaries of innovation. We have narrowed down our pool of innovators to 53 exciting finalists. These finalists, along with our existing grantees, have been invited to the DevelopmentXChange in Washington, D.C., to participate in the final stage of the competition and actively network their ideas with businesses, funders, development experts, non-governmental organizations and each other.

When: 11:30am to 6:30pm July 27th 2017
