Applicants are expected to demonstrate full partnership with the proposed developing country institution’s ethical review committee in the needs analysis to serve as the basis for the application and in proposed leadership, resource sharing and program activities.

Applications should include plans for sustaining proposed collaborative systems, processes, training components and resources after the end of the grant period.
