Mekong One Health Innovation Program Call for Proposals

Deadline to submit the proposal: May 31, 2024, 11:59 PM Eastern Daylight Time

The Mekong One Health Innovation Program (MOHIP) at Michigan State University in partnership with U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs (EAP) is implemented in collaboration with the One Health University Networks of Lao PDR, Vietnam, and Thailand. The overarching goal of MOHIP is to create a transnational network of One Health researchers and practitioners to facilitate the sharing of One Health research, educational, and evaluation tools, thereby enabling Mekong researchers and practitioners to develop evidence-based and informed health security policies and programs suitable for their region. MOHIP has three core activities: organize a series of virtual webinars on issues pertinent to the region (outreach), offer a course on “Health Security, One Health, and Zoonoses” (education), and provide grants for local researchers in Lao PDR, Vietnam, and Thailand to undertake research in issues pertinent to their countries and region (research).

MOHIP is calling for research proposals from Lao PDR, Thailand, and Vietnam researchers and practitioners that could examine priority health security issues of the respective countries.

The MOHIP intends to award three proposals, one from each of the three MOHIP countries of up to USD 30,000 for each proposal. Interested applicants may submit applications with a research performance period of up to one year.
