The David and Lucile Packard Foundation is pleased to announce the 2016 Quality Innovation Challenge awardees. The Quality Innovation Challenge is a global call for creative ideas to improve quality in sexual and reproductive health and rights for adolescents and youth.
This second challenge, hosted at the 2016 International Conference on Family Planning, asked applicants to present new ideas to improve quality through youth-centered and youth-led projects—recognizing that ensuring every individual’s right to quality care requires creative thinking and the engagement of young people as activist leaders of the sexual and reproductive health and rights movement.
Over 230 submissions were received from individuals and organizations around the world, and after a competitive selection process, the Foundation’s Population and Reproductive Health program selected nine awardees who have been invited to submit proposals to the Foundation for grant awards up to $100,000 each.
