In 2021-2026 NaUKMA will implement a project, supported by the grant of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the primary agency of the United States government responsible for biomedical and public health research.
The project «A mixed-methods sequential explanatory study to examine the implementation landscape for evidence-based transdiagnostic approaches for mental disorders in primary healthcare in Ukraine» is implemented in the framework of the NIH’s Fogarty International Center’s International Research Career Development Award supporting the career development of prominent international early career researchers in the area of health by providing financial support to their research projects and professional growth. At NAUKMA, such an award holder under the grant became a senior lecturer of the NAUKMA School of Public Health, Alyona Mazhnaya.
Interdisciplinary research project undertaken under the project at NaUKMA (on the basis of the School of Public Health, Center for Mental Health & Psychosocial Support and in collaboration with the University of John Hopkins) will advance evidence-based mental health treatment approaches and the development of scale-up strategies for closing the mental health treatment gap in Ukraine and other low and middle income countries (LMIC) addressing the key challenges of many Ukraine’s Public Health Agencies, as well as priorities set out by NIH.
An award by the National Institutes of Health will also provide professional development opportunities to its NaUKMA awardee, as well as comprehensive institutional support in awardee’s transition to full research independence and maturity.
