Annual network meetings Applicants must budget for the costs of having two team members participate in one annual face-to-face meeting of the GACD Research Network (location to vary annually).Attendance at this meeting is mandatory for 2 team members, with at least one participant from the LMIC team where relevant.
: As of January 2nd, the 'old' Science Committee of APH-VU/VUmc (EMGO ) will not accept any new proposals.
Already submitted proposals will be assessed and properly settled according to the former EMGO procedures.
The aim should be to answer key research questions about the adaption, and/or scale up of these intervention(s) in accessible, affordable and equitable ways in order to improve the prevention and management of mental disorders in the community in health care, psychosocial, and public health/community-based programs, and other settings.
Interventions should meet conditions and requirements of the local health and social system context and address any other contextual factors identified as possible barriers.
Proposals must build on interventions with promising or proven effectiveness (including cost-effectiveness) for the respective population groups under defined contextual circumstances.
Interventions that address gender-associated risk factors and vulnerability to mental disorders or differences in access, utilization, or responsiveness to care should also be considered.

Scope: Proposals must focus on mental disorders as defined by the WHO (see above), and must focus on implementation research in LMIC, and/or in vulnerable populations in HIC.
To this end, all funded teams are expected to use explicit indicators and measures of project context, reach, outcomes evaluation and scale-up potential in their plans and protocols. The Global Economic Burden of Noncommunicable Diseases.
