Awards for Partnerships for Enhanced Engagement in Research (PEER) Health

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), in partnership with NIH, supports the Partnerships for Enhanced Engagement in Research (PEER) Health, a competitive grants program directly supports developing country scientists working on research projects with NIH funded scientists. The projects are the first to be funded through an initiative designed to foster collaborative global research in critical areas of health and disease research.

Each PEER Health award is directly tied to an NIH funded scientist. View details of the related NIH award in NIH RePORTER.
