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.
Our next annual call for proposals will open in June 2018. These are ‘Open Calls’, with proposals sought that address specific or multiple public health issues by gathering evidence with the potential to contribute to improved public health outcomes in humanitarian contexts.
Rapid Response Grant
These grants can be applied for alongside our core grants. Rapid response grants are unique in that funding can be allocated to undertake research in the context of a rapid-onset crisis which hasn’t yet occurred.
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.
We are able to respond to exceptional public health emergencies with a short-term calls for research.
