Scope

Research Teams are invited to submit Concept Notes for two-year research projects. Teams successful at the Concept Note stage will be invited to submit Full Proposals.

The following types of research are considered in scope:

  • Epidemiological studies that describe and analyze patterns of diseases or health among women and consider different population and occupational factors.
  • Population health research that explores diverse women’s experiences as individuals and within the society (e.g., family and community, intergenerational relationships, socioeconomic groups, work groups and enterprises).
  • Intervention and Implementation research focused on exploring how policies, practices and strategies already put in place to alleviate the impact of COVID-19 influence the relationships between women’s paid and unpaid work and their health.

Specific Research Areas

A subset of funds is available to support research that is relevant to the scope and objectives of Women RISE and specifically addresses one of the following three Specific Research Areas:

  • Infectious diseases research focused on understanding how relationships between women’s work and health have been shaped by and are shaping disruptions to infectious disease prevention, immunization programs and care services.
  • HIV/AIDS STBBI research specific to women living with HIV/AIDS, COVID-19-related disruptions to HIV and STBBI prevention or care services, or the health of women in occupations that put them at increased risk for HIV and STBBI acquisition.
  • Pandemics and other health emergencies research that investigates ways the COVID-19 experience can inform, improve, and safeguard women’s health and socioeconomic well-being against future health emergencies.
Eligibility

The Research Team must include a Principal Investigator (PI) who is a low- and middle-income country (LMIC) researcher based in the LMIC Lead Applicant Organization and residing in an eligible LMIC country/territory where the research is proposed. The PI will be the team lead and will work in close collaboration with a Canada-based Co-Principal Investigator (Co-PI) and a Decision-Maker Co-PI based in the same country as the Lead Applicant Organization or in a country where the research will take place. For applications involving Indigenous communities, the RT must include at least one member who self-identifies as Indigenous or provides evidence of having meaningful and culturally safe involvement with Indigenous Peoples in an Indigenous Health Research Environment.

The Research Team must also include a Lead Applicant Organization and a Canadian Co-Applicant Organization.
