In Ep 14 we speak with Becca Smith, Senior Manager, Knowledge Management and Translation from Grand Challenges Canada. We talk about the different sectors and impact outcomes Grand Challenges Canada has achieved as an organization. From investments in technology to help newborns in South Africa to mental health support in Zimbabwe.
Over 21,000 lives have been saved and over 1.9 million lives have been improved worldwide through GCC Funded Innovation. And based on our impact modelling by the year 2030, we expect that to increase to up to potentially 1.6 million lives saved and up to 35 million lives improved through innovations that we funded.Becca Smith, Senior Manager, Knowledge Management and Translation From Grand Challenges Canada
