Grand Challenges Canada - Options for Pregnancy Termination Innovation Initiative

The goal of the Options for Pregnancy Termination Innovation Initiative (“OPTions Initiative”) is to support Bold Ideas with Big Impact.® We seek innovative and transformative approaches that put women, girls and people with diverse sexual and gender identities in control of where, when, and how they terminate their pregnancy where there are one or more legal grounds to support it.

We are excited to announce the initiative has launched its third round of funding! Seed grants of up to $250,000 CAD are available for innovations that seek to test and develop:

  1. New or improved approaches to increasing early access to existing pregnancy termination products and services in low- and middle-income countries, or
  2. Next-generation methods of pregnancy termination, menses induction or conception interruption. 

The application deadline for “access” innovations is August 11, 2021, at 12 PM (EST).  

Next generation methods applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until December 31, 2022, or funds are exhausted. Early submissions are advantageous as the call will be closed once funds have been spent.
