This Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) seeks opportunities to co-create, co-design, co-invest, and collaborate in the research, development, piloting, testing, and scaling of innovative, practical and cost-effective interventions to address the most pressing problems in global health. The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) invites organizations and companies to participate with USAID, in cooperation with its partners, to generate novel tools and approaches that accelerate and sustain improved health outcomes in developing countries.

PROBLEM: The global community has made great strides in reducing mortality around the world over the last 50 years, but progress in developing countries lags far behind that seen in developed countries. Every year an estimated 303,000 women die during pregnancy and childbirth, 5.9 million children die, and an even greater number become infected with life-threatening diseases like HIV/AIDS, malaria, diarrhea, pneumonia, and TB, among others. The vast majority of deaths due to these largely preventable causes occur in developing countries where access to health services is often poor. Outbreaks of emerging infectious diseases like Ebola and Zika only serve to further compound these health challenges, taxing already stressed health systems and elevating the risk of disease epidemics of global proportions.

CHALLENGE: Harness the power of science, technology, and innovation to generate new knowledge, tools, and approaches that can reduce developing country mortality down to the levels of more developed countries within a generation. USAID and partners will work to rapidly implement solutions and create an environment for sustainability, scalability, and ultimately health impact.

A Broad Agency Announcement is a 2 step process:


Step 1: The issuance of the BAA: A BAA document provides general information about an area of interest that USAID would like to explore. This particular BAA document discusses areas of interest specific to Research and Development for Global Health. Interested parties can not submit "Expressions of Interest (EOI)" to this BAA document, as this announcement is not a funding opportunity. See below (Step 2) for additional information about funding opportunities related to this BAA.


Step 2: The issuance of an Addendum: Once a particular area of interest has been identified by USAID, an Addendum is created and provides the following: (1) specific information regarding criteria, (2) eligibility and application requirements, (3) applicable deadlines, and (4) an Addendum-specific Point of Contact (POC). Monitor the following sites for Addenda to this BAA: and FedBizOpps.
