Program Overview

Fogarty's Global Health Research and Research Training eCapacity Initiative aims to support innovative research education programs to teach researchers at low and middle income country (LMIC) institutions the knowledge and skills necessary to incorporate Information and Communication Technology (ICT) into global health research and research training.

Proposed programs should leverage capacity built through prior Fogarty support by building on established research programs, research training programs or collaborations. The programs should significantly increase the ability of researchers to use, adapt and integrate ICT approaches, establishing electronic capacity (eCapacity) at LMIC institutions. Programs participants should develop into adaptable users of ICT who sustain ICT activities as changes arise in technology.
