GACD Primary and Secondary Prevention of Cancer

The current GACD funding call focuses on implementation research proposals for the primary and secondary prevention of cancer in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), and in populations facing conditions of vulnerability in high-income countries.

GACD Scaling-up Evidence-based Interventions

GACD is focusing on scaling-up evidence-based interventions at the population level for the prevention or management of hypertension or diabetes.

GACD Mental Health Research

GACD funding agencies are accepting implementation research proposals on child, adolescent and adult age onset mental disorders including, but not limited to, dementia, depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorders, alcohol- and drug-use disorders, etc., in low- and middle-income countries and/or in vulnerable populations in high-income countries.

GACD Lung Disease Research

GACD member organizations will accept implementation research proposals to address lung diseases related to environmental exposures, including indoor and outdoor air pollution and tobacco. Eligibility and application deadlines will vary by organization, and details will be released over time by each organization.

GACD Type 2 Diabetes Research

GACD member organizations, including NIH, recently solicited applications on type 2 diabetes with a focus on improving the science around implementation of existing interventions. NIH applications were accepted through the trans-NIH Initiative on Dissemination and Implementation Science for February 2014 application due dates.

GACD Hypertension Research

GACD members chose hypertension as their first joint funding initiative. Grants were announced in June 2012.
