For Cycle 2 of the PEER Health program, we have expanded the partner to include researchers that have an active US-government agency grant (previously referred to in Cycle 1 as a NIH-supported partner). These agencies include the National Institutes of Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Department of State, Department of Defense, among others.
Awards cannot exceed $142,000.00 USD per year for up to three years.
PEER Health is a USAID program which supports developing country researchers at universities and institutions of higher education in low and middle income countries (LMICs). In keeping with President Obama’s Global Health Initiative (GHI) to leverage ‘whole of government’ for improved global health, this program addresses evidence gaps in developing countries by supporting research partnerships between developing country Principal Investigators (PI) and scientists currently supported by US federal science agencies.
Additional information for Cycle 2 is available at the specific solicitation pages.
