Funding Opportunity Description: This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) supports planning, design and initial pilots for locally relevant and catalytic research on non-communicable diseases (NCDs) or injury in low and middle-income countries (LMICs).Research addressing multiple NCDs and their risk factors and research addressing NCDs as comorbidities for/with infectious diseases including HIV/AIDS is encouraged. Scientists in the United States (U.S.) or upper middle income countries (UMICs) are eligible to partner with scientists in LMIC institutions. Income categories used are defined by the World Bank at http://data.worldbank.org/about/country-classifications/country-and-lending-groups. Pilot activities and research are expected to inform the development of more comprehensive research programs that contribute to the long-term goals of building sustainable research capacity in LMICs to address NCDs and injury throughout life and to lead to diagnostics, prevention, treatment and implementation strategies. The proposed work may also contribute to developing a base for research networking and evidence-based policy beyond the specific research project.For applications on any research topic related to the brain, nervous system, mental health and substance abuse please see the companion FOA: PAR-14-331 Global brain and nervous system disorders research across the lifespan (R21).Applications on those topics are not appropriate for this FOA.
