CIHR Operating Grant – Population Health Intervention Research

The purpose of this funding opportunity is to support the prompt initiation of population health intervention research on rapidly unfolding programs, policies and resource distribution approaches that have been initiated by others (e.g. policy makers) and have the potential to impact health and health equity at the population level. This funding opportunity strongly encourages close collaboration between program implementers (e.g. decision-makers) and researchers but it will not support projects where the implementer and the researcher are the same person/institution. The total amount available for this funding opportunity is $1,600,000, enough to fund approximately six grants. This amount may increase if additional funding partners participate.
