Grand Challenges Canada: Drowning Prevention
Drowning is the number one cause of death in children in countries like China, Bangladesh, and Vietnam. It is preventable.
Consider supporting this effort, submitted by Dr Steve Beerman, former president of the International Lifesaving Federation (ILS), to reduce childhood drowning mortality through local programming in rural Bangladesh.
This project is one of 450 proof of concept projects seeking 70+ significant phase 1 investments from the Canadian Government. The ability of the project to engage public interest and support is part of the selection process.
