We are Elrha, a force for change in the humanitarian community. The research and innovation we support equips the humanitarian community with the knowledge of what works, so people affected by crises get the right help when they need it most.
Our purpose is clear: to empower the humanitarian community to improve humanitarian response. We make this happen by supporting and championing the outcomes of robust research and proven innovations.
We empower the humanitarian community. Find out how we can support you...

Here you will find our open funding opportunities for innovation (through the Humanitarian Innovation Fund) and research (through Research for Health in Humanitarian Crises).

Past Funding Opportunities

R2HC Annual Funding Call

R2HC aims to improve health outcomes by strengthening the evidence base for public health interventions in humanitarian crises. This grant programme is an ‘Open Call’, 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.

Taking a local perspective on measuring the impact of GBV programmes in emergencies

This was our second GBV funding call, ‘Taking a local perspective on measuring the impact of GBV Programming’! Through this call, we were seeking to support up to five Consortia with grants of up to £50,000 each. Our aim is to generate new context-based perspectives and insights to inform and progress the global agenda on measuring the impact of GBV programming in emergencies.

R2HC Responsive Research Mechanism

Funding through this grant mechanism allows us to respond to exceptional public health emergencies with short-term calls for research. The details of the Funding Call will depend on the nature of the humanitarian emergency and is confirmed once the mechanism is triggered.
