Eligibility

Program Overview

The overall objective of the Global Environmental and Occupational Health (GEOHealth) program is to support the development of institutions in the low- or middle-income countries (LMICs) that will serve as regional hubs for collaborative research, data management, training, curriculum and outreach material development, and policy support around high priority local, national, and regional environmental and occupational health threats. Hubs are supported by two coordinated linked awards to 1) a LMIC institution for research and 2) a U.S. institution to coordinate research training. Together all regional hubs supported will form the GEOHealth Network, a platform for coordinated environmental and occupational health research and research training activities.

GEOHealth Hubs are expected to bring together multiple disciplines to advance the pace of scientific discovery initially in one focal environmental or occupational health area. The focal environmental or occupational health-related area should be selected by the applicants, based upon expertise within the proposed consortium to address a priority public health need in the country and/or region. Applicants are encouraged to develop a deliberate process that builds on demonstrated capacity and may increase in scientific scope over the life of the grant. The scientific area of proposed research may include, but is not limited to:

  • agricultural health
  • workplace safety
  • occupational health
  • informal work
  • outdoor and indoor air quality
  • electronic waste
  • extractive industries
  • food safety
  • water quality
  • toxic waste
  • climate change health science
