Global Health Research and Research Training eCapacity Initiative

Status: No plans to recompete at this time

Program Overview

Fogarty's Global Health Research and Research Training eCapacity Initiative aimed to support innovative research education programs to teach researchers at low and middle income country (LMIC) institutions the knowledge and skills necessary to incorporate Information and Communication Technology (ICT) into global health research and research training.

Proposed programs leveraged capacity built through prior Fogarty support by building on established research programs, research training programs or collaborations. The programs aimed to significantly increase the ability of researchers to use, adapt and integrate ICT approaches, establishing electronic capacity (eCapacity) at LMIC institutions. Programs participants aimed to develop into adaptable users of ICT who sustain ICT activities as changes arise in technology.
