The Children’s Prize Foundation

The Children’s Prize is awarded to scientifically-minded individuals with a passion for global child health and a strong commitment to verify the impact of their work. Between 2013 and 2017, the Prize has awarded over $1,700,000.00 to such individuals and organizations across the globe.

The Problem

Child mortality is a core indicator for child health and well-being, in which child survival remains an urgent concern. It is unacceptable that about 15,000 children die every day- equivalent to about 10 deaths occurring every minute.

Majority of these deaths can be attributed to treatable causes, infectious diseases and neonatal complications being responsible for the vast majority of under-five deaths globally. According to the latest estimates by WHO and the Maternal and Child Epidemiology Estimation Group, of the 5.3 million deaths in children under five that occurred in 2018, about half were caused by infectious diseases and conditions such as pneumonia, diarrhoea, malaria, and birth defects.

The main killers of children under age five in 2018 included preterm birth complications (35%), intrapartum-related complications (24%), sepsis (15%), congenital abnormalities (11%), pneumonia/diarrhoea/tetanus (7%). Almost half of all under-five deaths are attributable to nutrition related factors, while more than 80 percent of neonatal deaths occur among newborn infants of low birth weights in the highest burden settings.

The Challenge

Propose a ready-to-execute project plan that is focused on saving children’s lives under-five.

To ensure that more children under the age of five survive and thrive, we must harness knowledge from around the world and across a broad range of disciplines to find the most effective solutions.

Project proposals submitted may include, but are not limited to, intervention solutions in healthcare services, technology, education, infrastructure and agriculture.

The Children’s Prize is available to anyone.

The contest process includes three major rounds and two review periods.

Utilize This Offer

Do you have an effective intervention that aims to save the lives of children under five? then, apply for 2020 Children’s Prize.

The Children’s Prize is an open online competition with a mission to advance child health and survival by insisting on impact and data-driven interventions.

The Prize administrators search for an impactful project that aligns with the Foundation’s goals, has a measured reduction in child mortality, and significant experience in the field.

Funding Information - US$150,000 money will be awarded.

Proposals will be accepted from non-profits (charities), for profits (companies), government programs, academic institutions, and individuals aged 18 years or older. However, the prize funds may only be used for charitable purposes, as specified in the contest goals.

Apply before June 28th.
