Dear HIFA colleagues,
We have received notice of an upcoming call for proposals which may be of interest to research institutions in LMICs:
Institutional Research Capacity Strengthening for NCDs
Potential advert date: 31 October 2020
For more information about the funding Programme, visit the Global Health Page https://www.nihr.ac.uk/explore-nihr/funding-programmes/global-health/
These awards will provide substantive funding to strengthen research capacity in LMICs to undertake and manage high-quality research to address the growing burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs). Awards will support a research-driven approach to strengthen institutional capacity in LMICs. Consortia will include an LMIC lead institution, a UK administering institution and up to three further partner LMIC HEIs, working together with relevant local and national stakeholders.
Note to all research institutions: Please consider the possibility of including HIFA in your next funding proposal, if your work would benefit from multidisciplinary thematic discussions on the forums. We are very open to start a dedicated project on NCDs, and there is interest for this among HIFA supporting organisations also.
Best wishes, Neil
