Grand Challenges Canada (GCC)

Grand Challenges Canada (GCC) provides funding for projects to support bold ideas with big impact in global health. The bold ideas supported integrate science/technology, social and business innovation (called Integrated Innovation™). GCC focuses on bringing successful innovation to scale, catalyzing sustainability and impact.

Grand Challenges Canada, which is funded by the Government of Canada, has developed the Stars in Global Health program to support Bold Ideas with Big Impact from the best and brightest talent, both in low- and middle-income countries and in Canada, to use scientific/technical, social and business innovation to address some of the most pressing global health challenges.
