The CIHR and IDRC funding opportunity launched under this GACD program will support projects that are examining how to implement one or more evidence-based interventions known to prevent or reduce exposure to NCD risk factor(s) associated with city environments across the following three themes presented in the GACD call:
- Behavioural change interventions,
- Interventions that focus on modifying the built environment, and/or
- Interventions that improve access to primary and secondary prevention services.
This funding opportunity will support projects relevant to the following research areas:
- Priority Research Area: Climate change and NCDs in cities
- Projects in this research area must take an approach that includes interventions focused on reducing the impact of climate change on NCDs across one or more of the above three themes.
- Projects including a focus on populations facing conditions of vulnerability in Canada must also include an equivalent focus on populations in LMICs.
- Open Research Area
- Projects in this research area are open to any of the above three themes.
- Projects including a focus on populations facing conditions of vulnerability in Canada must also include a focus on populations in LMICs and/or international Indigenous Peoples (including Indigenous Peoples in other HICs).
- Canadian-LMIC teams must include at least two independent researchers as Principal Applicants, one registered at a LMIC institution and one registered at an eligible Canadian institution. For teams in which research will be conducted in more than one LMIC country, there must be at least one independent researcher (as Principal Applicant or Co-Applicant) based in each LMIC country. The team must also include at least one decision maker and/or policy maker from a LMIC listed as Principal Knowledge User or Knowledge User.
- For teams that include research involving disadvantaged populations in Canada, the team must include at least one team member (either independent researcher or decision maker and/or policy maker), other than the Nominated Principle Applicant, from the involved community(ies).
- Teams working with Canadian Indigenous populations must include at least one team member, other than the Nominated Principal Applicant, who must be an Indigenous Elder and/or Indigenous Knowledge Keeper. The team must also include at least one Principle Applicant and Indigenous Knowledge User from each country where Indigenous research will be conducted.
