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 OPTions Initiative aims to increase gender equality and the empowerment of women, girls, and people with diverse sexual and gender identities by supporting innovative solutions that improve access to safe abortion. To reach our goal, we seek connections and strategic relationships with governments, funders, the private sector, sexual and reproductive health and rights institutions, and innovators that will help identify, promote, and scale up groundbreaking solutions for access to safe abortion.
