What areas are eligible for the RISE 2022 Female Research Teams – Call for Proposals?

Research teams are invited to submit concept notes for two-year research projects. Successful teams at the concept note stage will be invited to submit full proposals.

The following search types are considered in scope:

  • Epidemiological studies that describe and analyze disease or health patterns in women and take into account different demographic and occupational factors.
  • Population Health Research which explores the diverse experiences of women as individuals and within society (eg, family and community, intergenerational relationships, socio-economic groups, work groups and corporations).
  • Intervention research and implementation focused on exploring how policies, practices and strategies already in place to mitigate 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 are available to support research that is relevant to the scope and goals of Women RISE and specifically addresses one of the following three specific research areas:

  • Infectious diseases research has focused on understanding how the 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 jobs that put them at increased risk of contracting HIV and STBBIs.
  • Research on pandemics and other health emergencies which investigates ways in which the experience of COVID-19 can inform, improve, and protect women’s health and socioeconomic well-being from future health emergencies.
