International Community Access to Child Health Grant Cycle Now Open!
The International Community Access to Child Health (ICATCH) Grant Cycle is now open for pediatric healthcare providers and educators in low-income and low-middle-income countries for programs that improve the health of infants, children, or adolescents.
This year, ICATCH will accept applications in the following categories: physical or developmental disabilities, childhood or adolescent mental health, newborn health, nutrition/malnutrition, and care of hospitalized children.
Physical or Developmental Disabilities in Children: Including developmental delay, early childhood development, or physical disabilities that are congenital or acquired (e.g., blindness, deafness, cerebral palsy, impairment following conditions such as cerebral malaria or head trauma, or seizure disorder). Note: They will not fund proposals that only carry out screening for disabilities; projects that include screening must also include treatment or therapy for the disability.
Childhood or Adolescent Mental Health: For children of preschool age up to age 21 years.
Newborn Health: Projects must focus on the newborn period and can follow infants up to 6 months of age. Note: They will not fund proposals in this area that target only pregnant women or infants older than 6 months of age.
Nutrition/Malnutrition: For infants 6 months and older through people aged 21 years. This includes both community-based and hospital-based programs.
