Fogarty, along with three other NIH institutes, is soliciting applications for one- year administrative supplements to active NIH international research or research training grants in support of the Global Health Initiative and other health interventions focused on the health of women and girls and/or their role in the improvement of health.
These supplements are intended to be used for planning for future grant applications either to other NIH institutes or other government agencies - particularly those engaged in the GHI - or to outside international research funding entities.
Fogarty expects to award about $1 million during fiscal year 2011, plus additional funding from the other institutes. Requests must not exceed $40,000 in direct costs.
The proposed research should advance the health of women and girls, be host-country driven, sufficiently oriented toward implementation science and encompass as many of the GHI principles as possible.
