Today the Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases (GACD) is launching a call for research proposals on diabetes (type 2) in middle and low income countries.
It is estimated that 347 million people worldwide suffer from diabetes, with more than 80% living in low- and middle-income countries - among which 90% have type 2. Our call for research broadly aims to halt the prevalence of diabetes, which has been identified as one of the nine WHO NCD global voluntary targets for Member States by 2025.
The aim of this call is to fund projects that will generate new knowledge of interventions and their implementation for prevention and treatment of type 2 diabetes in low- and middle-income countries, and among vulnerable populations and indigenous populations of Australia and Canada.
There is scope to apply for multidisciplinary researchers to apply to our member organisations for a number of funding grants. Proposals should seek to be interactive between our member organisations, and policy in their respective countries, in order to maximise scope for accessible, equitable and far reaching research.
Please visit our website for more information on criterion, application details and country specific information. Please pass this on - it is a call for ANY researcher in ANY country. Follow us on twitter for updates GACD_media
