Hypertension Outcomes for T4 REsearch within Lower Middle-Income Countries (Hy-TREC) (U01)

Funding Agency:
National Institutes of Health

The purpose of this FOA is to support research that identifies and studies regional- or national-level implementation strategies for evidence-based interventions for the prevention, treatment, and control of hypertension in adults inWorld Bank defined Lower-MICs.  The FOA will support research that tests evidence-based implementation strategies that can accelerate regional and national scale-up of hypertension interventions and support high priority locally-driven late-stage (T4) implementation research.

Applications from Lower-MICs must collaborate with institution(s) in the US or other high income countries (HIC) to develop T4 implementation research teams; collaborating HIC institutions must have demonstrated knowledge and expertise in T4 implementation research and collaborate with Lower-MICs institutions in developing the relevant T4 implementation research agenda for hypertension prevention, treatment, and control. The multidisciplinary collaborative research team should contain broad membership from in-country institutions to conduct local needs assessments and create an actionable, context-specific T4 implementation research plan for hypertension prevention, treatment, and control.

Amount Description

Application budgets may not exceed $268,500 direct costs per fiscal year, but need to reflect the actual needs of the proposed project.
