NINDS is offering administrative supplements to promote global health research involving training and capacity building in low-to-middle income countries. The institute has set aside 2 million dollars to award approximately 25 supplements.
The prevalence of stroke and neurodegenerative disorders is rising rapidly and is becoming a significant health burden in low- and middle-income countries. However, global health research, training, and capacity building activities in the developing world—particularly in low-income countries—is inadequate to meet the region’s growing needs.
To advance global health research and to build research capacity in neurological disorders and stroke, NINDS encourages collaborations between NINDS-funded investigators and investigators from low- or middle-income countries. The goal is to strengthen existing research and research training, and to support capacity building and the sustainability of activities aimed at lessening the global impact of neurological diseases and stroke.
