NHMRC: Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases – Scaling-up evidence-based interventions at the population level for the prevention or management of hypertension and/or diabetes.

NHMRC is participating in a GACD Request for Applications (RFA) on the scale-up of interventions for the prevention, or detection and management of hypertension and/or diabetes in LMICs and Indigenous communities in high income countries.

This call will focus on scalable interventions at the population level for hypertension and/or diabetes prevention or detection and management in LMIC (as defined by The World Bank), and/or Indigenous communities in high income countries.


NHMRC has allocated a total of $4.9 million for this RFA. Duration of successful grants will be for five years or less.


The Chief Investigator A (CIA) must be based in Australia.

Where the work will be mainly carried out in low and middle income countries, it would be expected at least one Chief Investigator (other than CIA) on the application will be from the country where the work will take place.

Submission Requirements & Due Date

This GACD RFA is being conducted in a two stage assessment process consisting of an initial NHMRC peer review process, resulting in a list of Not For Further Consideration (NFFC) applications, followed by non-NFFC applications proceeding to a Joint International Review Panel.

The following dates are relevant to Stage One of the application process:
