County Innovation Challenge Fund - 30th Nov. 2016



The Programme supports a range of interventions to improve maternal and neonatal health (MNH) including training of health workers, health systems strengthening, community mobilisation, and demand generation. It is implemented across six counties with different socio-demographic contexts: peri-urban informal settlements in Nairobi; nomadic pastoralist communities in Garissa and Turkana; and rural agrarian populations in Kakamega, Bungoma and Homa Bay.


  1. Impact - Increase access to and utilisation of quality MNH services; strengthen health systems

  2. Innovation - Radical scalable and sustainable solutions that will turn around supply-side and demand-side limitations to quality MNH services.

  3. Local solutions - Respond to local challenges

  4. Building partnerships - Build capacity of local organisations to address existing constraints through recognising the value of local knowledge, experience and expertise in developing sustainable solutions

  5. Problem focused:
    Use a problem-focused approach to round three to achieve a balanced portfolio across the six counties, requesting proposals that respond to a defined set of issues in maternal and newborn health across the six counties


Funding limits up to a maximum of 200,000 or 400,000 pounds.
