Description:

 

A Targeted Call for Research (TCR) is a one-time solicitation for grant applications to address a specific health issue. A TCR specifies the scope and objectives of the research to be proposed, application requirements and procedures, and the review criteria to be applied in the evaluation of applications submitted in response to the TCR.

The Targeted Call for Research: Improving Indigenous maternal and child health in the early years 2022 grant opportunity aims to:

  • identify strength-based, action-oriented approaches and interventions that value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ concepts of health and wellbeing, cultural practices, and knowledge and learning to ensure that all children have the best start to life
  • develop a program of research that will positively influence public policy and practice in the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in relation to maternal and child health and early childhood development.

The outcomes of the research will improve maternal and child healthcare knowledge, health policies, care models and interventions. The program will also create a sustainable, multidisciplinary network that will extend beyond the conclusion of the funded research. The research will contribute to closing the gap by ensuring children are born healthy and strong and thrive in their early years.
