Elrha’s R2HC programme aims to increase the quality and quantity of collaborative research on recognised public health challenges in humanitarian crises, leading to improved health outcomes through cost effective humanitarian interventions.

Annual Calls
The R2HC 4th Call for Core and Rapid Response Proposals is NOW CLOSED.

Seed Funding
A key requirement for applying to R2HC for funding is the existence of a research partnership between humanitarian and academic organisations. In order to foster these partnerships, we offer Seed Funding to all applicants successful at the Expression of Interest stage and offer applicants the opportunity to apply to take part in Early-Stage Partnership Workshops.

Emergency Calls
Elrha is able to respond to exceptional public health emergencies with a short-term call for research.
An emergency call was launched in August 2014 as a response to the Ebola crisis in West Africa. For details of the projects we funded, see below. Future emergency calls of this kind may be launched in exceptional circumstances.

Elrha is hosted by Save the Children, a registered charity in England and Wales (213890) and Scotland (SC039570).
