NINDS encourages applications for framework programs for global health. This announcement is made together with 4 other NIH components.
As the world becomes an increasingly global community, there is a need for new, integrated, and multidimensional approaches to global health. Health concerns are shared by many nations and health crises can rapidly spread from one country to another. These health threats include infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, malaria, and drug-resistant tuberculosis, as well as the emerging threat of SARS and pandemic influenza. In addition, chronic neurologic disorders such as epilepsy, stroke, and traumatic brain injury contribute heavily to both disability and mortality. The purpose of this announcement is to support new framework programs for global health that foster multidisciplinary research.
