The Alliance for a Healthier World at Johns Hopkins University has awarded grants of up to $25,000 to eight interdisciplinary teams from across the university for projects designed to directly impact health inequities in low- and middle-income countries.

A total of $170,000 in grants were awarded to teams containing a combination of researchers from the Applied Physics Lab, the Bloomberg School of Public Health, the Carey Business School, the Berman Institute of Bioethics, Jhpiego, the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Education, the School of Medicine, the School of Nursing, and the Whiting School of Engineering.

Their projects will focus on communities in Bolivia, India, Jordan, Lebanon, Peru, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Thailand, Turkey, and Uganda, as well as the White Mountain Apache and Sioux tribes in the U.S.

“One thing we found from the first planning grants is that proposals were submitted by teams where the core of the team members were already working together,” said David Peters, the alliance’s director and chair of the Department of International Health at the Bloomberg School. “For future rounds, we are hoping to provide opportunities to expand the teams further, and to find ways for people who aren’t already working together to join existing collaborations and create new ones.”

This is the first round of planning grants awarded by the Alliance for a Healthier World, formerly the Global Health Signature Initiative. Proposals for a second cycle, with awards up to $25,000, are due by Nov. 15; additional details will soon be announced on the Alliance for a Healthier World website and in the monthly internal funding digest on research.jhu.edu.
