Funding and Fellowship Opportunities



Gates (Bill and Melinda) Foundation Global Health Program
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation's Global Health Division aims to harness advances in science and technology to save lives in developing countries. They work with partners to deliver proven tools including vaccines, drugs, and diagnostics as well as discover pathbreaking new solutions that are affordable and reliable. Equally important is innovation in how they bring health interventions to those who need them most. They invest heavily in vaccines to prevent infectious diseases including HIV, polio, and malaria and support the development of integrated health solutions for family planning, nutrition, and maternal and child health.

Center for Global Health/CDC/DHHS: Reducing the Burden of Neglected Parasitic Infections (NPIs) in the United States Through Evidence-based Prevention and Control Activities
Center for Global Health (CGH) invites applications to reduce the overall burden of neglected parasitic infections (NPIs) in the United States through evidence-based prevention and control activities including the development of new strategies, educational tools and materials, and guidelines. NPIs are a group of five parasitic diseases that have been targeted by the CDC as priorities for public health action based on the number of people infected, severity of the illnesses, and the ability to prevent and treat them. They are: Chagas disease, neurocysticercosis, toxocariasis, toxoplasmosis, and trichomoniasis. These educational tools and materials and guidelines developed will be used to improve NPI related preventive health knowledge and practices, improve recognition of signs and symptoms of NPIs, increase availability of best approaches and recommendations, improve availability of education training tools and materials, enhance capacity for public education on NPIs, and enhance capacity in the identification of NPIs. Successful strategies should have the potential to yield high impact public health outcomes, reach a high proportion of those at risk, and have the highest potential for significant impact on population health.
