GACD Webinar – Guidance for Applying to its Seventh Funding Call

This webinar provides guidance on applying for the GACD’s seventh call for applications.

About this event

The webinar will be held in two identical sessions on 7 February 2022 to accommodate different time zones. The first will be from 8-9am GMT and the second will be held from 4-5pm GMT. Zoom details will be sent to all registrants before the event. Live translation will be available in 21 languages using the wordly app (Instructions for using the app will be provided during the webinar).

The seventh call for applications under the GACD banner focuses on implementation research to reduce the NCD burden by targeting critical life stages and key transitions between life stages. Research should aim to improve health equity in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) or among disadvantaged populations in high-income countries (HICs).

The GACD seeks to fund collaborative, multidisciplinary, and cross-cultural teams. While only qualified researchers (as defined by individual agencies) can apply for this funding opportunity, collaboration with stakeholders, such as community and patient groups, local policymakers, public and clinical health professionals, non-governmental organisation leaders and/or others whose organisations or communities might benefit from the research, is a requirement for this call. Both researchers and non-researchers are invited to attend this webinar.

The Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases (GACD) brings together major international research funding agencies specifically to address the growing burden of NCDs in LMICs and vulnerable populations in high-income countries (HICs).


  • Invests in impactful NCD implementation research;
  • Builds implementation science capacity and capability in relation to NCDs;
  • Facilitates collaborations and partnerships to support GACD investment and impact.

The GACD Research Network of investigators are active in more than 73 countries around the world.
