05/04 NIH–Framework Programs for Global Health

Purpose. Support for the creation of new, multidisciplinary educational programs that will foster Global Health research and teaching within and between institutions, to be called Framework Programs for Global Health.  Fogarty International Center (FIC) and collaborating Institutes (NCI, NIEHS, NINDS, and NIBIB) invite applications for up to three years of support for the creation of new, multidisciplinary programs that will foster Global Health research and teaching within and between institutions, to be called Framework Programs for Global Health.  Specifically, the objectives of this FOA are (1) to increase interactions and joint activities among investigators already engaged in Global Health teaching and research within a campus and among institutions; (2) to encourage new investigators from diverse faculties and disciplines and new institutions to enter the Global Health field; and (3) to build curricula and develop educational opportunities that will engage the next generation of scientists and health workers to consider careers in Global Health.   Two core activities will be to create an administrative framework to bring multiple schools (engineering, economics, business, law, arts and sciences, communications, public health, medicine, nursing, veterinary sciences, environmental studies, agriculture, and others) together on the topic of Global Health and to develop multidisciplinary Global Health curricula at the undergraduate, graduate, postdoctoral, and/or professional school levels.  http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-TW-08-001.html
