Re-announcement of Information 2017 KNIH-DMP Grant project
Guidelines for Applicants
National Institute of Health (NIH) aims to contribute to making the world free from diseases. NIH conducts and supports biomedical science and health research to address national challenges from emerging, re-emerging, and national notable infectious diseases as well as non-communicable chronic diseases. Such hard work will eventually improve national health care services and the quality of public life.
Under the umbrella of NIH, the Division of Malaria & Parasitic Diseases (DMP) conducts diagnosis, surveys and research of indigenous, imported, and tropical parasitic diseases. As one of the global networks to enhance the capacity for preventing infectious diseases at a global level, DMP has continued to support Asian countries under the project of “International Laboratory Installation and Collaborative Research on Neglected Tropical and Vector-borne Diseases.”
Laboratories for research collaboration under the network project have been in operation in major Asian countries. Annual surveys were carried out for vector-bone diseases, neglected tropical diseases (NTD) and parasitic diseases (e.g. helminthiasis and malaria).
Principles and Priorities of the Grant Program
- 1. Sharing resources for research on infectious diseases control
2. Strengthening capacity for conducting research on human resources through training
3. Supporting the infrastructure for laboratories (e.g. equipment, reagents, etc.)
4. Enhancing research capacity and conducting collaborative works on common issues to prevent and control parasitic diseases or vector-borne diseases.
