All applications to this funding opportunity announcement should fall within the mission of the Institutes/Centers. The following NIH Offices may co-fund applications assigned to those Institutes/Centers.

Sexual and Gender Minority Research Office (SGMRO)

Purpose

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) vision for women’s health is a world in which the influences of sex and gender are rigorously integrated into the health research enterprise. For the purposes of this Notice, sex refers to a set of biological variables, including anatomy, physiology, genetics, and hormones. For the purposes of this Notice, gender refers to a set of social and structural variables that encompass gender identity and expression, gender roles and norms, gender relations, and gender power systems (e.g., structural sexism).

Sex-linked biology and gender-related factors can act independently or interactively to influence health. As a social, cultural, and structural construct, gender encompasses multiple domains. Many other social variables including race, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and education intersect with gender to impact health and disease in unique ways. Intersectional frameworks enable consideration of how these socially determined categories overlap and interact to create disparate and inequitable outcomes for individuals and communities.

The NIH Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH) and our Institute, Center, and Office (ICO) partners are issuing this Notice to highlight interest in receiving research and training grant applications focused on health impacts of gender-related social and structural variables. For this Notice, relevant domains of gender are gender roles and norms, gender relations, gender equity/inequity, gender equality/inequality, gender-related power dynamics, and structural sexism. Applications can consider one or more domains as they relate to health.

For consideration under this NOSI, applications should have a clear and central focus on social and/or structural domains of gender as demonstrated through a primary aim of EITHER (1) elucidating modifiable factors in gender-related health disparities OR (2) developing, testing, or implementing social or structural interventions to mitigate gender-related health disparities OR (3) investigating the interactions between multiple social and structural domains of gender (e.g., gender roles and gender inequity; power and gender relations). In each of these potential areas of focus, intersectional approaches to gender-related social and structural variables are strongly encouraged.

Topics of particular interest are:

  • Community-led interventions to address gender-related health disparities
  • Development or testing innovative, intersectional approaches to addressing gender-related health disparities
  • Projects to enhance understanding of health disparities based in structural sexism, gender norms, relational power dynamics, and/or gender inequities
  • Projects to develop, test, implement and/or evaluate interventions aimed at mitigating health disparities based in structural sexism, gender norms, relational power dynamics, and gender inequities. Interventions can target one or multiple levels of gender-related variables
  • Gendered influences on prevention, treatment, and outcomes of female-specific conditions and diseases more common in women (e.g., fibroids, autoimmune diseases)
  • Research that evaluates one or more health prevention and treatment outcomes in light of legal and policy issues at the intersections of public health surveillance, care delivery, and social and structural domains of gender


Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH)

ORWH is part of the Office of the Director, NIH, and works with the 27 NIH Institutes and Centers to advance rigorous research of relevance to the health of women. ORWH does not award grants but co-funds women’s health-related applications and research projects that have received an award from one of the participating NIH Institutes and Centers listed in the announcement. Applications seeking ORWH co-funding, in response to this Notice, should ensure that the proposed work is aligned with at least one goal and objective outlined in the Trans-NIH Strategic Plan for Women’s Health Research.


National Institute on Aging (NIA)

NIA is interested in supporting research focused on health influences of gender as a social and structural variable in studies that align with the goals outlined in the National Institute on Aging’s Strategic Directions for Research, 2020-2025. Applicants are particularly encouraged to propose research that is guided by the NIA Health Disparities Research Framework, on and with members of NIA’s Priority Populations. Applications proposing to develop and test behavioral interventions are expected to apply the NIH Stage Model for Behavioral Intervention Development framework in the description of the proposed study aims and research activities.

NIA will consider meritorious applications that fall within the Institute’s pay line. Projects focused on examining gender-related social and structural variables in the context of Alzheimer's disease and Alzheimer's disease-related dementias should be submitted in response to NOT-AG-21-050: Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Sex and Gender Differences in Alzheimer’s Disease and Alzheimer’s Disease-Related Dementias (AD/ADRD).


National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS)

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) is interested in applications within the NINDS mission and supports clinical and implementation research focused on identifying, monitoring, and targeting biological, environmental, social, community, structural, and healthcare system factors that lead to or are associated with disparities (or inequities) in neurological diseases and care across the lifespan (NINDS Disorders Index: https://www.ninds.nih.gov/health-information/disorders). NINDS is particularly interested in mission-relevant clinical studies that address the intersection between gender and NIH-designated populations who experience health disparities (HDPs), including, but not limited to:

  • Projects to enhance understanding of neurological health disparities based in structural sexism, gender norms, relational power dynamics, gender inequities, and/or intersectional oppression.
  • Projects that identify and measure specific modifiable social determinants of health that contribute to gender-based neurological health disparities among NIH-designated HDPs.
  • Projects to identify strategies to address structural sexism, organizational practices, policies and other social, cultural, and contextual factors that lead to disparate gender-based neurological health outcomes among NIH-designated HDPs.


Applicants are encouraged to utilize the NINDS SDOH framework for addressing health inequities and incorporate community engagement strategies into their clinical study designs. Many core principles of community engagement (trust, inclusivity, culturally-centered, etc.) are outlined in the National Academy of Medicine’s Advancing Health Equity and Systems Transformation through Community Engagement.

Please refer to https://www.ninds.nih.gov/Funding/Find-Funding-Opportunities and/or contact appropriate NINDS program staff to find the appropriate NINDS-specific NOFO for other types of clinical trials. The NINDS encourages the use of common data elements (see NINDS CDE Project: https://www.commondataelements.ninds.nih.gov/). A letter of intent and communication with appropriate NINDS program staff prior to submission of an application is strongly encouraged.


National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH)

NIMH will only accept HIV/AIDS applications. Mental health applications that do not study HIV/ AIDS are non-responsive and will not be reviewed.

NIMH Division of AIDS Research is interested in the development and testing of interventions to address gender-related influences on HIV prevention and treatment outcomes. Applicants are encouraged to consider the ways in which gender intersects with other social variables to impact HIV-related health outcomes. Areas of specific interest include gender transformative interventions to address gender norms, economic empowerment interventions for people that are economically disadvantaged based on their gender, and interventions addressing gender-based violence, with a primary focus on improving HIV prevention and treatment outcomes.


National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID)
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) is interested in supporting projects that explore the social and structural domains of gender that are relevant to domestic and international collaborative research related to components of NIAID’s scientific mission. Areas of programmatic interest include the following:

  • HIV- and STI-related research - gender-related social and structural variables that influence access, uptake, and adherence to biomedical primary HIV and STI prevention strategies (e.g. antiretrovirals/ARVs, such as long-acting agents, for pre-exposure prophylaxis/PrEP; ARVs for post-exposure prophylaxis/PEP, multipurpose prevention technologies (MPT), antimicrobials for pre- and post-exposure prophylaxis), strategies for suppression and control of HIV to prevent transmission, concomitant STIs, other co-infections, and infectious comorbidities in adults and/or adolescents, including pregnant people.
  • Analyses of social determinants of health including race, ethnicity, disability, socioeconomic status, and education that, when combined with social and structural domains of gender, demonstrate a collective influence on HIV- and STI-related prevention and treatment outcome(s).


The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA)

NIDA is interested in research that will address social and structural determinants of health among people at risk for substance use and who use addictive substances. A topic of particular interest is research that implement evidence-based strategies to address intersectional stigma, including substance use- and HIV-related stigma and power dynamics/imbalances, particularly among populations that experience a disproportionate impact of substance use (e.g., women of color, sexual/gender minorities, justice-involved women) to enhance substance use prevention and service delivery efforts.

NIDA seeks to support research that address factors that impede and facilitate the delivery of gender-tailored, high-quality, effective addiction treatment services at one or more levels (e.g., individual, patient-provider, family, organizational, community, or system). Of particular interest is research that develop, test, and implement gender-tailored interventions that facilitate the referral, receipt, and retention in substance use treatment/services among non-Hispanic black/African American women and other women of color with substance use disorder.

NIDA strongly encourages applicants to: 1) engage and include the perspectives of relevant practitioners and stakeholders (e.g., individuals with lived expertise/experience) in study conceptualization, design, execution, interpretation, and dissemination of findings; 2) consider the potential adaptability, scalability, equity, and sustainability of the proposed evidence-based interventions; and 3) ensure translation and dissemination of study findings and related resources to key audiences best positioned to influence change in practice.

NIDA strongly encourages (when applicable) applications proposing research with human subject samples to use NIDA funded and co-funded data and specimen resources openly available for investigators. Examples include: PhenX Toolkit (https://www.phenxtoolkit.org/), PhenX Social Determinants of Health Assessments Collection, NIDA Longitudinal Cohort studies of people with HIV and SUD, MWCCS (MACS/WIHS Combined Cohort Study), IeDEA (IeDEA International epidemiology Databases to Evaluate AIDS), NNTC (The National NeuroAIDS Tissue Consortium), CHARTER (CNS HIV Antiretroviral Therapy Effects Research Study).


National Cancer Institute (NCI)

The NCI seeks to eliminate cancer-related disparities by promoting and conducting health equity research that identifies and addresses the mechanisms contributing to disparities across the cancer control continuum and throughout the human lifespan. For this NOSI, the NCI is interested in the development, testing, implementation of interventions addressing gender-related health disparities on cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment outcomes. Studies are encouraged to use interoperable sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) data collection, such as the measures included in the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) report on SOGI data collection

Topics of particular interest include but are not limited to:

  • The intersectionality of gender with other social variables (such as race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, level of education, disability, sexual orientation, etc.) and/or structural variables (such as state and federal policies) and their effect on cancer incidence, diagnosis, treatment, and survival
  • Structural discrimination studies that incorporate macro-level conditions to study the health impacts of gender-related variables
  • Gender bias associated with diagnostic delays for cancer
  • Understanding and/or addressing barriers to quality care delivery, including cancer treatment and follow-up care based on gender roles and gender inequity
  • Development, implementation, and/or evaluation of multi-level interventions (e.g., at the individual, patient, provider, family, organizational, community and/or system levels) that are tested in collaboration with community partner(s) and address the impact of social and structural factors on cancer risk and/or outcomes
  • Gendered influences on cancer prevention, treatment, and outcomes of cancers of the female reproductive system
  • Community-led interventions to address gender-related cancer disparities
  • Addressing gender-related cancer disparities related to HIV-associated malignancies


National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI)

The NHLBI is interested in supporting research relevant to our mission in the areas of heart, lung, blood and sleep disorders. Proposed research may include observational studies, epidemiological studies or clinical trials. NHLBI will support clinical trials that are mechanistic in nature and address either the social or structural domains of gender in the development, prevention or treatment of HBLS disorders/diseases, or mechanistic trials that examine the intersection of social and structural gender variables. NHLBI will not support non-mechanistic clinical trials.

Topics of particular interest to NHLBI include, but are not limited to:

  • Studies investigating the role of gender in the mechanisms of HBLS disease/disorder development.
  • Studies that leverage TOPMed data to examine the underlying social and structural influences on biological mechanisms of disease.
  • Understanding gender in adherence to interventions for the treatment or prevention of HBLS diseases/disorders.
  • The intersection between social and structural influences and gender on the impact of diseases/disorders.
  • Understanding the influence of gender in the recognition, prevention, and treatment of pregnancy complications including preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, hypertension, peripartum cardiomyopathy, infection, and hemorrhage to address high rates of maternal morbidity and mortality and related health disparities in the U.S.
  • Epidemiological studies that investigate social and structural gender-related variables on disparities in cardiovascular health outcomes.
  • Implementation studies that test the effectiveness of interventions aimed at addressing social or structural gender domains to reduce gender health disparities.


Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD)

The NICHD mission is to lead research and training to understand human development, improve reproductive health, enhance the lives of children and adolescents, and optimize abilities for all. The NICHD's broad and diverse research portfolio includes research related to conception and pregnancy; typical and atypical development in childhood; childhood trauma, injury, and critical illness; the transition from adolescence to adulthood; reproductive health; rehabilitation; intellectual, developmental, and physical disabilities; and population dynamics across the lifespan.
