Heat adaptation: evaluating interventions to help manage the health effects of heat

The award will fund teams led by researchers from low- or middle-income countries (LMIC) to test interventions to manage heat-related health risks in real settings – not under laboratory conditions. By the end of the award, successful applicants will have delivered a high-quality study testing and evaluating a new or existing heat adaptation intervention with the potential to change policy and practice in LMICs.
