Call focus: Implementation Science Research
The Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases (GACD) funding call will focus on implementation research proposals for the primary and/or secondary prevention of cancer  in Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs) and/or in populations facing conditions of vulnerability in High-Income Countries (HICs).
Proposals must focus on implementation research for the primary and/or secondary prevention of cancer in LMICs and/or in populations facing conditions of vulnerability in HICs. Proposals must build on evidence-based interventions (including cost-effectiveness) for the respective population groups under defined contextual circumstances. For promising interventions, a limited validation period can be envisaged. However, the core of the research activities should focus on their implementation in real-life settings. The proposed interventions should be gender responsive.
The aim should be to adapt and scale-up the implementation of these intervention(s) in accessible, affordable and equitable ways in order to improve the prevention and early diagnosis of cancer in real-life settings. Interventions should meet conditions and requirements of the local health and social system context and address any other contextual factors identified as possible barriers.
One of the conditions of co-funding are that South African research teams applying for funding are expected to include Principal Investigator(s) (PI) from participating GACD members from high-income countries. Applicants are encouraged to visit the websites of the GACD funding agencies as well as the GACD website for specification of the individual participating agencies.
