Global Research Programme: Addressing the Health Needs of Women and Children in the Most Disadvantaged Populations Globally

Deadline: 12 April 2017

The Department of Biotechnology (DBT) in India, in collaboration with Department of International Development (DFID), the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Medical Research Council (MRC), have jointly announced a second call to fund global health research addressing the health needs of women and children globally.

The joint funders aim to fund high quality multidisciplinary research that will increase knowledge and understanding on chronic and infectious diseases for women and their unborn children in LMICs.

Priority Areas

  • Anaemia (including Iron, Folate and B12 deficiency related conditions)
  • Sexually transmitted diseases
  • Gestational diabetes mellitus and
  • Hypertensive disorders

Funding Information

To support the development of these trilateral partnerships a £4,000 travel grant will be available to successful applicants after the concept proposal stage in order to support the full proposal development process.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Research proposals must be led by a UK, Indian and LIC research collaboration.
  • Priority will be given to research that benefits the most vulnerable populations and/or those in poorly resourced settings.
  • The funders recognise that many of the world’s poor live in low-income countries and middle-income countries, so it is a specific objective of this programme to increase the body of research that is relevant or transferable to disadvantaged populations in both contexts. All LIC countries of focus, alongside India, need to be adequately justified and a local need identified.
  • The relevance of all countries involved in any multi-country study must also be justified and budgets should reflect a focus on local contexts.
  • Eligible activities under this call must address issues of prevention, diagnosis and management of diseases and can include;
  • Development and testing of health interventions (including diagnostics), including late phase clinical trials
  • Biomedical, nutritional, public health, behavioural, educational, structural, and community, health services and health systems interventions.
  • Operational and implementation research to deliver health interventions, including research that leads to better knowledge and understanding of service provision and integration.

How to Apply

Concept proposals using the relevant pro forma must be submitted via email at the address given on the website.

Eligible Countries:  Afghanistan, Gambia, Niger, Benin, Guinea, Rwanda, Burkina Faso, Guinea-Bissau, Sierra Leone, Burundi, Haiti, Somalia, Cambodia, Korea, South Sudan, Central African Republic, Liberia, Tanzania, Chad, Madagascar, Togo, Comoros, Malawi, Uganda, Congo, Mali, Zimbabwe, Eritrea, Mozambique, Ethiopia, Nepal, United Kingdom, India.
