Fund Offers Support for Global Health Partnerships

The Duke Global Health Institute (DGHI) invites proposals and ideas for strategic investments that strengthen partnerships and build capacity in collaboration with our institutional partners. Through this RFP, DGHI seeks to make one-time awards that will support growing collaborations by enhancing technical, financial or administrative capacity, with the larger goal of creating a more sustainable platform that will promote the shared mission of the partners. Examples of potential investments include developing support structures by way of IT (internet connectivity or videoconferencing capability), communications/website, office space to support activities of the partnership, data management, or in-country personnel to assist with various administrative functions. Proposals may also include support for conferences, workshops or skill-based training activities for local partner scientists, with the larger goal to foster interdisciplinary collaboration and reduce global health disparities. Proposals may involve more than one partnership. DGHI will prioritize proposals that have multidisciplinary components, and those applications that highlight how an initial investment may lead to and be sustained by subsequent funding sources, including the potential for shared resources with the collaborators.
