EDCTP: Capacity Development to Facilitate Delivery and Uptake of New or Improved Medical Interventions in African Health Systems

Deadline: 11 October 2018

EDCTP has launched a Call for Proposals to support actions that will facilitate the translation of research results of medical interventions into policies and practices for national health programmes in order to strengthen health systems.

Proposals addressing the following activities are particularly encouraged:

  • development of methodological tools for the successful translation of research against PRDs into policies and practices for public health programmes. This includes health information system tools and analytics;
  • optimising strategies for widespread adoption and institutionalisation of research results within public health systems. This may entail the analysis of established methods and frameworks from the field of policy analysis to improve the understanding of the process of health policy development in a given sub-Saharan African country and in an international context;
  • successful adoption of one or more products coming out of previously-funded EDCTP grant(s) into national health policies.

Proposals should clearly define the activities and mechanisms to be used within the project, including details of any collaboration with national and/or public authorities, international organisations or commercial partnerships that will be established in order to achieve the expected impact.
