This GACD funding call will focus on implementation research that leads to improved understanding of how interventions that reduce the risk of non-communicable disease onset or progression can be better adapted to different city environments and/or scaled within and across cities, particularly in low- and middle-income countries or vulnerable populations within high-income countries.

CIHR and IDRC expect to fund two grants for up to five years with a value of up to CAD 2 million each.
