Deadline: 4 November 2016
DFID anticipates launching a competition for Infectious Diseases – Research Programme Consortia (RPC) in low and middle income countries. The research programmes will take an integrated and multi-disciplinary approach to help DFID and the development community better understand what works most effectively to tackle infectious diseases.
It is anticipated one or two contracts will be awarded, each with a value of £6m – £8m.
- DFID is looking for multi-disciplinary research (such as implementation science, health systems, governance public health, political theory, anthropology, epidemiology, modelling, social science, entomology and economics) that will build upon the existing evidence base on effective interventions and delivery mechanisms to tackle infectious diseases in low and middle income countries.
- The research should ideally also address a number of core themes, including delivery through health systems, value for money of interventions, vulnerable groups, and building evidence on interventions in a range of contexts including (but not limited to) fragile and conflict affected states.
- Proposals should take account of DFID’s approach to public health, outlined in the Health Position Paper which stresses that the health system goes beyond the health sector and beyond the public sector.
