The overarching goal of the Institute for Global Health Equity & Innovation (IGHEI) of the University of Toronto (U of T) is to create a pandemic of health through social innovation.
We are pleased to issue this Seed Grant Request for Proposals as a mechanism to bring together community based organizations, students, early career faculty members at the U of T, and other university collaborators, to undertake projects that lead to scalable and sustainable social enterprises that promote greater equity in health.
Health is fundamentally influenced by the social, political, economic, and environmental conditions in which people grow, live and work.
It is anticipated that Seed Grants from $5,000 up to $25,000 will be awarded to support projects that seek to create and spread health through social innovations that address the underlying, sometimes invisible elements of power, politics and privilege that drive health inequity, elevating the chances of some to experience good health while severely limiting the chances of others to survive and thrive.
