National Institutes of Health: Reducing Global Burden of Morbidity and Mortality caused by Tobacco Use

Deadline: 13 October 2016

Department of Health and Human Services, National Institutes of Health is currently inviting applications for its International Tobacco, and Health Research and Capacity Building Program with an aim to support collaborative research projects that address the health burden of tobacco use in low-and middle-income countries (LMICs).  Trans-disciplinary research in LMICs may be proposed, with the overall goal of reducing the global burden of morbidity and mortality caused by tobacco use. The program is designed to promote international research collaborations between investigators in the U.S. and scientists/institutions in LMICs to pursue research on tobacco control and prevention in LMICs where tobacco consumption poses a public health challenge.

The goal of the program is focused on strengthening the research base in LMICs.  To this end, research capacity strengthening in the LMIC(s) must be an integrated and significant part of the research application
