|Scaling-up of evidence-based interventions at the population level for the prevention or management of hypertension and/or diabetes||Implementation Science Research||Wednesday, 24 April 2019|
Proposals must focus on scalable interventions at the population level for hypertension and/or diabetes prevention or detection and management in LMIC, and/or in vulnerable populations in HIC. Proposals addressing the concurrence of hypertension and diabetes are encouraged as well as those addressing the underlying risk factors of both conditions.
Proposals must align with commitments or planned commitments at a regional or national level to implement evidence-based interventions (including evidence of cost-effectiveness and affordability) across health or other sectors (e.g. education, information technology). In addition to a broad geographic scope, proposals are expected to ensure scale-up covers diverse populations with consideration given to: geography (remote, rural, urban); demographic mix (gender, age, ethnicity); community readiness for intervention; political environment; and/or other relevant criteria.

The budgets of the applications should be realistic and ensure that the potential outcomes of the projects could be reached within the proposed timelines. The period of funding will not exceed 3 years. The number of projects to be funded and the total amount requested per application will be determined by its scientific merit as assessed by the GACD expert review panel.
It is advisable that the South African PI(s) include co-investigators from his/her own Institution. If the PI for one or other reason cannot complete the study the co-investigator can step-in to complete the study within the timelines agreed to.
