Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Improving Adherence to Treatment and Prevention Regimens and Maintenance of Health Behaviors to Promote Health

Application Due Date
Brief Description

This Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) is being re-issued by the NIH Adherence Network through the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR), with participation from multiple NIH Institutes, Centers, and Offices. This NOSI calls for research grant applications that address adherence to recommended treatment and prevention regimens or maintenance of behaviors to promote positive health outcomes (collectively referred to as health behaviors). Applications may address health behavior initiation, execution, and/or persistence through mechanistic studies, efficacy trials, or implementation research. Descriptive studies and intervention research may address relevant determinants at one or more levels of ecologic influence, including the individual, caregiver/family, provider, healthcare system, and community levels. Approaches designed to reduce health disparities and improve equitable health outcomes are strongly encouraged. The specific research interests of participating NIH Institutes, Centers, and Offices are detailed below.
