Translating Research to Protect Health through Health Promotion, Prevention, and Preparedness (R18)

Letter of Intent Deadline: March 23, 2009

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is intended to solicit applications that support translation of health protection research into public health practice with an emphasis on achieving health equity. This FOA will also contribute to achieving the health promotion and disease prevention objectives of “Healthy People 2010” and to measuring program performance as stipulated by the Government Performance and Review Act (GPRA). CDC is committed to protecting people’s health and achieving the fair distribution of health determinants, outcomes, and resources within and between segments of the population, regardless of social standing (i.e. health equity). Understanding the best approaches, methods and strategies for moving the best science to practice is essential to protect and improve health. Much translation research and practice has historically occurred in biomedical research and the healthcare delivery system, but making people healthier also requires protection of health and prevention of poor health through health protection research and public health practice, programs, and policy. As we look ahead, the translation of research to practice will be an important consideration in the nation’s effort to reform the health system. These investments will support the development and refinement of the evidence-base for clinical and community-based prevention and wellness strategies.  For more information, visit:
