The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) is pleased to announce the upcoming launch of the Moving Upstream: Structural Determinants of Health - Catalyst Grants.

This funding opportunity will be led by CIHR - Institute of Population and Public Health, in partnership with the Institute of Aging, the Institute of Infection and Immunity, the Institute of Cancer Research, the Institute of Health Services and Policy Research, the Institute of Gender and Health, the Institute of Neurosciences, Mental Health and Addiction, the Institute of Human Development, Child and Youth Health, the CIHR HIV/AIDS and Sexually Transmitted and Blood-Borne Infections Research Initiative, the Institute of Indigenous Peoples’ Health, and the Canadian Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research.

This one-year funding opportunity will support interdisciplinary research to analyze, contextualize and/or evaluate how structural drivers (e.g., legislation and policies, governance structures, ecological and commercial determinants) can create, maintain, or exacerbate health (in)equity and population health across sub-groups, regions, contexts and settings. The desired outcome is to contribute to the evidence base in Canada on the structural drivers that improve, sustain, or deteriorate population health and health equity by bringing together health research with other disciplines.
