Drs. John Haaga, Director of the NIA Division of Behavioral and Social Research (DBSR), and John Phillips, Chief of the Population and Social Processes Branch within NIA DBSR, co-authored a blog on the new global initiative to spark low-cost health aging innovations. In collaboration with the National Academy of Medicine’s Healthy Longevity Global Grand Challenge, the NIA has released a new funding opportunity to fund projects that improve functioning and quality of life for older adults living in low- and middle-income countries or the low-income, disabled, and isolated older adults living in high-income countries.  The NIA is hopeful that this opportunity will encourage clever and reasonably priced solutions for healthy aging products, devices, or techniques that currently lack seed funding, and have a large and beneficial impact on older adults around the world.
