Call for applications
Literature reviews and research gap analysis on social determinants of urban health: how social and gender dynamics in a COVID-19 context affect the prevention and control of infectious diseases of poverty
Deadline for applications: 14 August 2020 (17:00 CET)
Institutions from low and middle-income countries (LMICs) working on public health, urban health, implementation research and infectious disease prevention and control are invited to submit individual or collaborative proposals where two or more institutions are forming a consortium.
Proposals must include the production of a series of literature reviews. Applicants may wish to consider organizing a virtual consultation (e.g. eDelphi exercise) using these reviews to determine research gaps.
The overall objective of this work is to synthesize and consolidate evidence from a series of literature reviews /state-of-the-art scoping reviews that will inform TDR’s research agenda on urban health, infectious disease and gender research, including in COVID-19 and post COVID-19 scenarios. The work is expected to be completed by October 2021. View a list of possible themes and topics which reviews could focus on. These are provided as a guide and applicants may suggest different titles. However, preference will be given to closely related topics. Each applicant is expected to conduct a maximum of two literature reviews.
Applications are welcome from research institutions based in low- and middle-income countries in all WHO Regions. Applications must demonstrate an understanding of intersectionality applied to public health and specifically to infectious diseases of poverty in urban settings. Research groups, networks or consortia from more than two countries working in low- and middle-income countries within WHO Regions are eligible to apply.
