  • Chair: Applied Public Health

    The purpose of this funding opportunity is to fund diverse mid-career applied public health researchers in Canada who will undertake inclusive and equitable applied research programs that tackle pressing public health challenges and who will work with decision makers from various sectors and communities to help support evidence-informed decisions that improve health and health equity. The 2019 Lancet series on Oral Health articulated the need for a national public health approach to address this key issue in human health. The Government of Canada announced plans for publicly funded dental care for low-income people in Canada in Budget 2022. To align with CIHR IMHA’s Strategic Plan priority on Oral Health, an Applied Public Health Chair will be funded to support a leader in Canada addressing national oral health challenges through a public health lens, including the effectiveness, equitable outcomes, and efficiencies of prevention interventions.
