Children’s Prize 2014: Online Application in now open

Children’s Prize 2014. Reflecting that many humanitarian organizations fighting child mortality lack the means to quantitatively assess the impact of their work, the Data for Life Prize invites applicants to submit a successful but under-recognized life-saving intervention for children under five that deserves more rigorous study. Two winners will receive $50,000 each to fund meticulous, independent, year-long field studies of their chosen intervention.

THE PROBLEM:

Nearly 7 million children under the age of five die every year, and there is a scarcity of data to tell us which interventions save the most lives.


THE CHALLENGE:

Design a scientific study with a budget of $50,000 that will validate a previously unproven but highly effective intervention to reduce child mortality, demonstrating the potential to save a large number of additional lives through scale up.
