Fogarty Seeks Input on its Strategic Plan
The U.S. National Institutes of Health Fogarty International Center is updating its strategic plan. Accordingly, it seeks input from scientists, the general public, and interested parties. Fogarty is further seeking to identify current and future needs and directions for global health research and research training.
Fogarty requests comments that are specifically, but not exclusively, on the following topics:
– What are specific gaps, needs and opportunities in global health research that should be addressed by Fogarty in the next 5-10 years?
– Are there specific gaps and/or opportunities related to the use of information and communication technologies (ICT), mobile technologies (mHealth), and distance learning in research and researching training?
– What are specific gaps, needs, and opportunities related to research and research training in chronic, non-communicable diseases?
– What are specific gaps, needs, and opportunities related to research and research training in infectious diseases?
– How can Fogarty strengthen the research-enabling environment at research institutions in low and middle income countries?
– How can Fogarty encourage more collaboration in research and research training among institutions in low and middle income countries?
