The Fogarty International Center and seven partner Institutes and Centers requested input on approaches NIH might take to promote greater equity in global health research conducted in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) in May 2022.
The RFI received 186 responses from a diverse range of organizations, including academic institutions, government agencies, non-governmental organizations, professional associations, and health care systems. The respondents represented 46 different countries, with a majority based at academic institutions. The information collected in the responses was analyzed and categorized into three main areas: barriers and challenges, key thematic areas, and recommended strategies and solutions.
In the interest of transparency and public dissemination, this report is a broad summary of the responses, which will also be used by NIH to identify possible next steps and actions for consideration.
The content of this report reflects the views and ideas of the respondents to the RFI, and does not represent the views of the NIH, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), or the U.S. government.
