The Options for Pregnancy Termination (OPTions) Innovation Fund: The Options for Pregnancy Termination (OPTions) Innovation Initiative has launched a new funding opportunity open to applicants worldwide, for innovations that improve women’s and girls’ access to safe abortion in low- and middle-income countries where there are one or more legal grounds to support it.
The OPTions Initiative seeks innovative and transformative approaches that put women and girls in control of where, when and how they terminate their pregnancy. The focus of this call is therefore to support the development and testing of: 1) new approaches to increasing early access to existing abortion products and services, and 2) new methods of pregnancy termination. Successful proposals will be awarded seed grants of up to CAD $250,000 for 18 to 24 months.
