Following the success of the global health research call, aiming to deliver measurable benefits to patients and the public in low and middle-income countries on the (DAC), NIHR are now inviting a second round of applications from existing specialist academic groups who wish to expand into the field of global health.
Awards of up to £2m over three years are available for existing departments within universities and research institutes. These funds will allow academic groups to develop new links with partners in DAC-list countries and support other nations across the world with the UK’s gold standard science and research. The funds will be used to build capacity in partner countries, and run pilot projects, with the aim of building strong partnerships for delivery of world-class global health research in the future. Research in any field of applied global health that is for the primary benefit of patients and the public in one or more DAC list country will be considered.
