The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) is soliciting research proposals to expand the evidence base for policy approaches for the primary prevention of multiple forms of violence experienced by children, youth, and adults.
that promote the social and economic well-being of populations and address community characteristics associated with violence have the potential to not only reduce rates of multiple forms of violence, including the four forms that are the focus of this announcement:
child abuse and neglect, youth violence, community violence, intimate partner violence (including teen dating violence), and sexual violence, but also impact health equity.
To advance CDC’s commitment to achieving health equity, the intent is to support applications that investigate policies that address social and structural conditions to reduce the disproportionate burden of violence experienced by some groups and communities.
Applications should empirically examine the health equity implications of selected policies on population(s) disproportionately impacted by violence.
