Implementation Research on Noncommunicable Disease Risk Factors among Low- and Middle-Income Country and Tribal Populations Living in City Environments (R61/R33 Clinical Trial Required)

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) participating Institutes and Centers (ICs), in collaboration with the Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases (GACD), invite applications for implementation research focused on addressing risk factors for common noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) in World Bank-defined


low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) and American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) Tribal Nation populations in the United States.

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) supports innovative approaches to identifying, understanding, developing, and implementing strategies for overcoming barriers to the adoption, adaptation, integration, scale-up, and sustainability of evidence-based interventions, tools, policies, and guidelines.

In addition, studies to advance dissemination and implementation research methods and measures into application are encouraged.

Specifically, this FOA invites applications that propose implementation research targeted to reducing the risks of NCDs in the context of cities in LMICs and/or among AI/AN Tribal Nation populations in cities in the United States, with the potential to equip policymakers and practitioners with evidence-based strategies for prevention and/or management of NCDs among disadvantaged populations globally.

In the context of this FOA, "cities" include urban centers, informal settlements and slums, and periurban areas.

This FOA uses the bi-phasic, milestone driven R61/R33 grant mechanism.

Awards made under this FOA will initially support a two-year milestone-driven initiation (R61) phase, with possible transition to an implementation (R33) phase of up to 3 additional years.

Only projects that meet the scientific milestones and award requirements of the R61 phase may transition to the R33 phase.

Applications submitted in response to this FOA must address both the R61 and R33 phases.
