the Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases (GACD) has launched its first call for research proposals. Starting with the one from the UK MRC (see link http://www.mrc.ac.uk/Fundingopportunities/Calls/GACD/MRC007865), to be followed in May by three more from other members of GACD (whose members, including NIH, account for 80 percent of all health research funding globally) for a total of $25 million for this one common call. It is for implementation research for hypertension- specifically for low and middle income countries and for underserved populations in high income countries.
