Goal 1: Promote Human Health

Would unconditional basic income improve people's health & ease poverty better than conventional welfare programs?

Here's an article on the "Mincome" program which Canada tested in the 1970's in a small town:

It had many positive effects on people's lives and health.

Quotes:

'In the period that Mincome was administered, hospital visits dropped 8.5 per cent.'

Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Implementation of Evidence-based Guidelines in LMICs trending idea

How can implementation strategies be tested in low and middle income countries for contextually and culturally adapted evidence-based clinical care guidelines with a focus on prevalent non-communicable diseases with large burdens such as sickle cell disease, hypertension, heart disease, stroke, asthma, and COPD?

Details on the impact of addressing this CQ or CC

Evidence-based guidelines for heart, lung, and blood diseases, developed within high income countries are challenging to implement within low and middle income countries because delivery capacity and health care infrastructure is often limited. Contextually, culturally and language adapted guidelines implementable within low and middle income countries can impart substantial benefit while distributing more evenly global knowledge of proven effective interventions while improving health equity. Proven effective interventions would get delivered in an effective manner across low and middle income countries which will improve heart, lung, and blood health outcomes.

Feasibility and challenges of addressing this CQ or CC

The NHLBI Global Health Think Tank recommended research on implementation of contextually, culturally and language-adapted clinical care guidelines in low and middle income countries and encouraged addressing this issue in the near future.

Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

T4 Implementation Research Platform in Low Income Countries

What are the best strategies to stimulate development of a T4 Implementation Research network within low income countries (LICs)?

Is this idea a Compelling Question (CQ) or Critical Challenge (CC)? Compelling Question (CQ)

Details on the impact of addressing this CQ or CC

• Currently there are huge implementation challenges within LIC contexts and only limited progress is being made to address the gaps
• Conducting research in the context where its finding will be scaled up will vastly increase its appropriateness, adoption and uptake, fidelity, and sustainability
• Small improvements in the challenging context of LICs should provide opportunities to make a large burden reduction

Feasibility and challenges of addressing this CQ or CC

• Currently there are formative efforts to engage biomedical research in LICs with H3Africa, Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases, and others
• NHLBI Think Tanks and Workshops have found much interest and demand to T4 Implementation research engagement
• Key non-traditional partners (World Bank, USAID) are working on implementation strategies in LICs currently and will be strong partners
