The Defense Health Agency (DHA) Research and Development Directorate released a grant opportunity to support research aimed at improving health care and military readiness within the Military Health System.

The Military Health System Research Program’s (MHSRP) Notice of Funding Opportunity amplifies how DHA is a learning organization committed to fostering high-value research that supports better care, better health, and increased readiness, with lower costs.

First established in 2019, the program provides funding for competitive intramural and extramural research awards. Prior awardees focused include: Dartmouth College, Pennsylvania State University, Brown University, Naval Postgraduate School, Naval Health Research Center, and the U.S. Army Institute for Surgical Research. 

Funded research will examine issues important to the MHS including cost, quality, outcomes, variation, and access to care, resulting in actionable insights for decision-making and policy recommendations. Research projects should help identify the factors that improve health care to Department of Defense beneficiaries, including individual service members, families, and communities.

“This funding opportunity supports research that has a direct connection to DHA’s military readiness mission and will improve health care for our beneficiaries across the world,” said Dr. Nereyda Sevilla, who is leading the grant effort.
