Up to $500,000 will be available to support 3-5 studies over a 12 – 24 month period, dependent on the scope and scale of activities proposed.   Of particular interest are: 1) studies measuring the impact of adopting clean cooking on predictors of chronic respiratory and cardiovascular disease, and 2) studies providing direct evidence of the link between exposure to household air pollution and cardiovascular disease. Given the limited budget and tight timeline for studies to be completed, opportunities to leverage ongoing projects and/or existing datasets are highly encouraged.
