Each of our Global Health Centers brings a unique expertise that makes the Indiana CTSI Global Health Program a world-class leader in serving health needs of underserved populations across the world.
The Indiana CTSI institutions (Indiana University, University of Notre Dame, and Purdue University) established a new reciprocal innovation program to design, demonstrate, replicate, and rapidly disseminate health innovations developed through collaborations with our low- and middle-income countries (LMIC). Reciprocal innovation is the bi-directional and iterative exchange of a technology, methodology, or process between at least two countries, one lower or middle income country and one high income country, to address a common health challenge and provide mutual benefit to both sides. Lessons learned are continually shared throughout the process to suit the needs and infrastructure of each country.
For upcoming rounds of funding, the Indiana CTSI Global Health Grants Program is focused on reciprocal innovation by supporting Global Health Reciprocal Innovation Demonstration Grants and Global Health Reciprocal Innovation Planning Grants. The Demonstration Grants fund up to (2) awards up to $50,000 each to support high impact solutions that provide reciprocal benefit to Indiana and our LMIC partners, while the Planning Grants fund awards up to $10,000 to support planning and training activities that will lead to applications for projects demonstrating reciprocal innovation. Brief videos answering frequently asked questions on the grants can be found below.
