Government launches £60 million call for global health research

Date: 18 November 2016

UK universities are being invited to apply for Department of Health funding for research to benefit people’s health in low and middle-income countries across the globe.

£60 million will be available for successful universities looking to expand their existing global health work, or for new entrants to the field.

The NIHR is particularly keen to see proposals which consider areas currently under-researched. These include non-communicable diseases such as mental health and tobacco control, road safety, surgery and health and applied social or economic research. 

Minister for Public Health and Innovation Nicola Blackwood said:

“We want to support other nations across the world with our gold standard science and research. 

“These funds will allow our universities to continue to make great strides in research excellence.  I look forward to seeing the exciting projects this money will support”.

Applications close on Thursday 26 January 2017 at 1pm.

Awards will be made in April 2017, and distributed over the following five years.
