R2HC Call for Proposals Now Open!

Published on 04/06/2018

Our R2HC programme’s Call for Proposals opened on 5 June 2018.

We are a public health research fund aiming to improve health outcomes by strengthening the evidence base for public health interventions in humanitarian crises. Our programme is the product of a strategic partnership between the UK Government (DFID), the Wellcome Trust, and the UK National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).

With topics ranging from mental health to non-communicable diseases, through R2HC we have funded over 40 grants and awarded almost £14 million to organisations working in humanitarian health since 2014.

This year’s Call

£3.5million is available for collaborative research aiming to improve public health outcomes in humanitarian crises. Shortlisted applicants are also eligible for £10k seed funding to support proposal development and strengthen research partnerships.

Once again, this is an ‘Open Call’, with proposals invited to address specific or multiple public health issues, gathering data or evidence with the potential to contribute to improved public health outcomes in humanitarian contexts. Under this Call, proposals on the following theme will be particularly welcomed:

  • Evaluation of interventions focused on health system strengthening in fragile states and protracted crises.

Further details regarding the focus for this Call can be found in our FAQs.
