Are you interested in global health research?

We fund high quality applied research in developing countries that are eligible to receive Official Development Assistance (ODA) from the UK international development budget.

Our research addresses the diverse health needs of people in low and middle income countries (LMICs).

Our strategic priorities from 2022-2025 are to:

  • address the shifting global burden of disease
  • develop health systems to identify and respond to population needs
  • build resilience to tackle future global health threats
  • strengthen research capacity in LMICs through equitable partnerships between LMIC and UK researchers
