With the burden of chronic non-communicable diseases rapidly increasing, the GACD partnership is launching a call for proposals with a focus on implementation research, which examines interventions that aim to prevent chronic lung diseases in LMICs (as defined by The World Bank) and in vulnerable populations in high-income countries (HIC) such as indigenous populations in Canada and Australia. Implementation research examines what interventions work, for whom, under what contextual circumstances and whether the intervention(s) are affordable, adaptable and scalable in ways that are sustainable, accessible and equitable.

The primary focus of all proposals must be on tobacco control policies (across sectors), and how these are/are not addressing the equity gap (gender, indigenous populations, other minority populations) that currently exists in patterns of tobacco use and related disease outcomes.

Multi-country and/or multi-site studies that allow comparisons of tobacco-related policy across numerous sites and how these are/are not responsive to the tobacco gaps, whether these policies (including related fiscal policies) are/are not successfully closing the gap are encouraged.

The total amount available for this funding opportunity is $5,000,000, enough to fund approximately two grants. The maximum amount per grant is $400,000 per annum for up to five years.

CIHR and IDRC aim to fund teams involving researchers from Canada and low or middle income countries (LMICs). CIHR will fund Canadian members of the research team and IDRC will fund supporting researchers from LMICs.
