UnitaidExplore launches new paediatric formulations call 

Unitaid is delighted to announce the next call for its agile funding mechanism UnitaidExplore.

Following the success of the last round of applications to expand access to oxygen, the next call focuses on one of the most challenging issues in global health – paediatric medicine formulations.

There is currently a huge deficit in the availability of fit-for-purpose treatments tailored for children living in LMICs and affected by the deadliest infectious diseases.

This call challenges innovators to propose a solution that can be applied to medicines for children in LMICs, leading to improvements in care and ultimately lives saved.

Unitaid’s Director of Strategy Janet Ginnard said: “Unitaid is deeply committed to children’s health. Through UnitaidExplore, we are seeking bright ideas to make better child-friendly medicines a reality.”

The deadline for submissions is November 25th and full details can be found here
