The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) invites global
problem solvers to answer the call for groundbreaking ideas to enhance our
ability to respond to the current Zika outbreak and generate cutting-edge
technologies and approaches that better prepare the world to address the
disease threats of tomorrow.

The Combating Zika and Future Threats Grand Challenge

invest up to $30 million in solutions that can help mitigate the spread and
impact of the Zika virus by filling critical gaps in the pipeline and
improve our ability to prevent, detect, and respond to future infectious
disease outbreaks. The Challenge seeks innovative ideas that address key
challenges and opportunities in vector control, personal and household
protection, healthcare worker safety, surveillance, clinic and laboratory
systems, diagnostics, sample transport, community engagement, and
healthcare worker tools.

Learn more and answer the call for innovative ideas.

Your imagination can help us spark transformational change and accelerate
substantial and sustainable progress against combating Zika and future
health threats. Together, we can transform insurmountable development
challenges into solvable problems.
