Funding brief: “Step Up!” the AstraZeneca Young Health Global Grants Programme aims to extend the reach and impact of AstraZeneca’s investment in young people’s health.

It builds on the success of the Young Health Programme and enables a wider range of applications to be considered from NGOs, non-profits and other charitable organisations seeking to innovate and scale their impact in relation to young people’s health and wellbeing. It is aligned with United Nations SDG3 (health and wellbeing) and seeks to fund innovative appraoches to improving young people’s health.

Objectives: They aim to:
Learn about what really works
Have a positive impact on the young people involved in the projects and the communities that they serve
Increase investment in and understanding of health and wellbeing initiatives for young people

And to generate:
Case studies and other evidence of promising approaches

The grants programme aims to achieve its intended impact through funding new ideas, focusing on understanding challenges and creating interventions that catalyse change.  Priority will be given to applications that are led by or involving young people, which demonstrate potential to innovate and grow in scale.  We expect projects to focus on one or more of the following:
Exploring challenges and opportunities to explore, define and understand social needs
