Skilled at high-level meta-analyses of the world?  Full of ideas about how the state of medicine should develop? Submit a Grand Challenge to direct the $200M that the B&MGF has allocated to global health innovation.

A Grand Challenge is neither the statement of the global health problem itself (e.g., malaria or AIDS) nor the request for a specific health intervention (e.g., a drug or vaccine), but the call for a discrete scientific or technological innovation which will break through the roadblock that stands between where we are now and where we would like to be in science, medicine, and public health.

Here is a pdf of the Call for Ideas.
