Advancing Infectious Disease Detection and Response in Uganda

The purpose of this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is: To conduct and monitor epidemiologic, clinical, and laboratory-based projects, surveillance, and research of important diseases in Uganda including but not limited to activities to address acute febrile illness, antimicrobial resistance and hospital acquired infections, respiratory infections and influenza, enteric illnesses, and other public health threats. To incorporate the results of research activities into operational disease detection, prevention, and response or control programs in Uganda and the strengthening of local workforce capacity and dissemination of findings across the region, with partners, and globally. Other areas for research include emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases, zoonotic and vector borne diseases; environmental health issues effecting infectious diseases (such as water and air); vaccine-preventable diseases; biosafety and security; and other public health threats of local importance.

  • Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards. The estimated total level of funding (in U.S. dollars) available, including direct and in-direct costs, for entire 5-year project period is $10,000,000. The number of awards will be up to 1 (one). Awards issued under this NOFO are contingent upon availability of funds and a sufficiently meritorious application. Because the nature and scope of the proposed research may vary from year to year, it is also anticipated that the size and duration of the award may also vary.
  • Budget and Period of Performance. The estimated total funding (direct and indirect) for the first budget period, 9/30/2019 to 9/29/2020, is estimated to be $2,000,000 USD, ranging from $0 USD to $2,000,000 USD. The estimated total funding (direct and indirect) for the entire period of performance, 9/30/2019 to 9/29/2024 $10,000,000 USD.

Any individual(s) with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research as the Project Director/Principal Investigator (PD/PI) is invited to work with his/her organization to develop an application for support. Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are always encouraged to apply for HHS/CDC support.
