Framework Programs for Global Health (FRAME)

Status: No plans to recompete at this time

Program Overview

This initiative builds global health research capacity in the United States and in low- and middle-income countries by supporting the development of innovative, multidisciplinary global health programs. Through the Framework Programs for Global Health, institutions create administrative frameworks to bring multiple schools (such as engineering, business, arts and sciences, law, communications, public health, medicine, environmental studies, and others) together on the topic of Global Health and develop multidisciplinary Global Health curricula for undergraduate, graduate and professional school students. Each program leverages and enhances currently-funded Global Health projects at their institution, supported by NIH and other sponsors, as well as encourages new training opportunities, collaborations and research. Institutions may choose to partner with other institutions anywhere in the world to plan joint curricula, interactive programs, and even joint degrees. See links for Fiscal Year Awards, below, for lists of current awards and abstracts.
