RFA 09-2 seeks proposals on the health effects of air pollution in developing countries in Asia with respect to 1) adverse reproductive outcomes, including low birth weight, pre-term birth, and birth defects, and/or 2) acute lower respiratory infection in children and other children’s health outcomes. As much as $400,000 will be available for studies funded under RFA 09-2. HEI expects to fund up to 3 studies, of up to roughly 2 years’ duration, at $150,000 to $200,000 per year. HEI’s International Scientific Oversight Committee (ISOC) may consider slightly higher budgets from particularly responsive proposals. Opportunities for cost-sharing / provision of matching funds are actively encouraged.
