Trans-NIH Regional Grant Writing & Scientific Peer Review Workshops
CGH Program/Initiative Type: Capacity Building
CGH organizes the Regional Grant Writing and Scientific Peer Review Workshops in coordination with several Institutes and Centers across the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to increase the participation of scientists from LMICs in the research grant process; develop strategies for sustainable research support and collaborations; and use competitive research as a tool to address global health issues. Specific outcomes from these workshops include the successful application of research grants from NIH, Wellcome Trust, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as well as the development of training opportunities that aided 126 participants from 26 countries.
