NIHR – Funding alert

The NIHR Global Health Policy and Systems Research (Global HPSR) Programme aims to support research in global health policy and systems research which is directly and primarily of benefit to people in low and middle-income countries (LMICs).

This will be driven by effective equitable partnerships between LMIC and UK researchers, who together will:

  • engage stakeholders
  • identify and address priorities for research in health policy and health systems
  • develop plans for capacity strengthening and knowledge sharing

A series of three complementary research funding opportunities are planned. These have been informed by stakeholder engagement, including the development of a global HPSR community of interest.

The first of these opportunities are Development Awards, launching in early June 2019.

These awards will allow development of equitable partnerships between ODA-eligible LMIC researchers and UK institutions to; identify and engage relevant stakeholders (policy makers and LMIC communities); undertake a needs-assessment and identify local priorities for research, with the aim that Development Awards will support an application for future research funding.
