Yes. Determinants of health and root causes of gender inequities in the U.S. may differ from those in other countries, and interventions that are not relevant in the U.S. context will not be considered. Also, in contrast to many other countries, the U.S. lacks a universal system of health care access and coverage. Therefore, interventions that rely on such a universal platform of care for delivery of services are less relevant, due to limited transferability.
At the same time, the U.S. population is large and diverse and we anticipate that there may be solutions or approaches from various places in the world that could have implications for specific U.S. regions, contexts, or sub-groups, even if the countries differ in other ways. Therefore, we encourage applicants to consider the local conditions, assumptions, and mechanisms that contribute to the effectiveness of an approach in the home setting and to describe how these could feasibly transfer to or be adapted for a certain U.S. region, context, or sub-group.
