Description

The objective of this grant opportunity is to provide grants of financial assistance to support medical research and medical innovation projects that:

  • Stream 1 (Targeted Call for Research): design, implement and/or evaluate the effectiveness of integrated and multidisciplinary delivery of maternal and child health services in the first 2000 days of life (pregnancy to age 5) for equitable health and development.
  • Stream 2 (Targeted Call for Research): pilot approaches for improving health outcomes by promoting adoption of healthy lifestyles in adolescents and young adults.
  • Stream 3 (Incubator): conduct small-scale developmental projects to create screening or prevention approaches to reduce the risk of developing cardiometabolic disease post-birth, after a hypertensive disorder of pregnancy and/or gestational diabetes.
  • Stream 4 (Targeted Call for Research): develop, implement and/or evaluate new co-designed and scalable lifestyle interventions to reduce the risk of chronic conditions in adults from Priority Populations.

The intended outcome of the research funded by this grant opportunity is to improve the health and wellbeing of Australians by:

  • Stream 1: improving healthy development in the first 2000 days of life
  • Stream 2: improving health outcomes in adolescents and young adults by supporting healthy lifestyles
  • Stream 3: reducing the incidence of cardiometabolic diseases after pregnancy
  • Stream 4: reducing the incidence of chronic conditions by improving modifiable lifestyle-related risk factors in Priority Populations.

Applications to this grant opportunity must propose research that addresses one of the four Streams of research.

This grant opportunity is being administered by NHMRC on behalf of the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care.
