Holding thumbs: Fogarty funding opportunity

In August 2016 a small working group of the mICF partnership submitted a grant application to the U.S. based federal agency, National Institutes of Health entitled “ICanFunction mHealth Solution (mICF): Improving mental health of vulnerable youth in South Africa by mapping narratives of context and functioning to ICF.”

If successfully funded, a mental health mICF prototype will be developed and pilot-tested that captures user-driven information to improve the understanding of one’s mental health and well-being. The mobile application would be useful to both consumer users and health/social welfare professionals.
