The Washington Global Health Alliance released a request for proposal today for the commercialization of global health technologies. If you have a global health technology ready for deployment, you can apply for funding support. The Washington Global Health Alliance, through its Washington Global Health Fund program, is offering one or more grants totaling $205,000. Grants will be awarded to Washington state organizations or companies.
Eligible recipients are nonprofit organizations, private-sector companies, and public research institutions engaged in development, production, promotion, and/or delivery of global health technologies and products.
The Life Sciences Discovery Fund contracted with WGHA to administer grants to be used solely to promote the development and delivery of global health technologies and products. In administration of the LSDF funds WGHA will utilize the expertise of an Awards Committee to analyze grant proposals and make recommendations to WGHA, which will make the final awards.
Projects can be, but are not limited to, global health technology development (drugs, devices, and diagnostics), mobile technology applications, agricultural technologies with global health applications, and technologies or programs to address trauma or chronic disease burdens. Basic research projects are not eligible for funding. Public-private partnerships are eligible.
All submissions must be received by Monday, September 14 at 5:00 p.m. PST.
