Wellcome Trust – Joint Health Systems Research Initiative

  Tuesday, 19 Jan 2021 | Funding Deadline

This scheme supports research based in low- and middle-income countries to improve health systems in those locations. The scheme is jointly supported by the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the Medical Research Council (MRC) and the Wellcome Trust.

Health systems in low- and middle-income countries face the challenges of substantial socioeconomic and health inequalities, rapid globalisation and evolving disease burdens. We need a robust evidence base to strengthen health systems and improve the delivery of healthcare.

Our reviewers are looking for proposals that will generate evidence on how to strengthen and improve health systems in low- and middle-income countries. Research findings should inform the delivery of evidence-based interventions or structural changes that are of direct relevance to decision makers.


Deadline for proposals: 19th January 2021
