CRDF Global supports research in important global health topics, such as HIV/AIDS research, infant wellness, and regional infectious disease prevention and surveillance.
SUCCESSFUL MODELS FOR PUBLIC HEALTH RESEARCH FUNDING
We organize scientific conferences, trainings, or professional development workshops for public health experts. These events are followed by a targeted grant competitions, which we administer for participating researchers and their affiliated institutes. Previous research topics have included TB research, drug abuse and HIV infection, leishmaniasis, and water-borne pathogens.
ADVANCING LOCAL KNOWLEDGE FOR GLOBAL IMPACTS
Our work in public health focues on addressing local or regional issues through international research collaborations. We support scientists who want to work with their counterparts overseas but lack the resources to do so by providing travel grants, hosting competitive research competitions, and matching scientists together based on their disciplines.
EXCHANGING KNOWLEDGE, SAVING LIVES
CRDF Global designs and manages fellowship programs that connect scientists—including those from low-resourced and isolated countries— with leading public health experts and research techniques. Our fellowship programs strengthen scientists’ ability to conduct science responsibly and improve biosafety, biosecurity, and public and animal health policies in countries with under-developed medical, diagnostic and research infrastructure.
