The Fogarty International Center and several other NIH institutes, including NIAID, invite you to respond to the Request for Information (RFI) on Promoting Equity in Global Health Research. Learn about the RFI and related NIAID efforts below.
About the RFI
NIH invites feedback from all members of the U.S. and international scientific, academic, and public health communities, with a special interest in responses from stakeholders in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). This is your opportunity to share ideas or insights about NIH practices that enhance equity in collaborative international research, especially how to engage scientists and institutions in LMICs.
Your responses will help improve NIH’s understanding of potential research funding, priority setting, administrative practices, and strategies that could encourage or facilitate equitable global health research.
Check the RFI linked above for full details, including a list of topics and questions you could consider. Complete the RFI Response Form no later than August 1, 2022.
NIAID Support for Global Research
Global Research is an integral part of many NIAID-funded research projects, programs, initiatives, and other activities. International work helps further the understanding of diseases and disease management at home and around the world. Learn more about NIAID’s Role and find examples of Research by Region.
To improve equity in global research, NIAID supports funding initiatives, e.g.:
- PAR-21-037, Global Infectious Disease Research Administration Development Award for Low- and Middle-Income Country Institutions (G11, Clinical Trial Not Allowed). We covered this program in our April 6, 2022 article “G11 Sample Applications and Opportunity for Foreign Grant Administrators.”
- PAR-21-120, Global Infectious Disease Research Training Program (D43, Clinical Trial Optional). We covered this program in our July 1, 2020 article “Find Funding for Global Infectious Disease Research Training.”
NIAID also offers resources for foreign scientists and administrators, e.g.:
- Global Research, International Applications, and Foreign Grants Management website sections. Find guidance for foreign investigators, projects, or institutions seeking or administering NIAID awards.
- Template for Foreign Institutions—Manual of Operations for Research Awards. The Template’s explanations and example procedures from institutions in LMICs can help others set up or expand their sponsored research programs.
- International Grants and Contracts Training Workshops. We typically offer workshops several times each year. Check the page periodically for new offerings.
- Resources for Global Researchers. Find shared data sets, regulatory support, analytical assay services, consultation on protocol development, and more.
