Deadline: 2 April 2019

The UKRI GCRF Health and Context call is seeking proposals for interdisciplinary research addressing wider contextual factors contributing to the burden of infectious and non-communicable diseases (NCDs). These factors may include social, cultural, historical, and religious beliefs and practices, or wider biological, ecological and environmental factors.

Focus Areas

  • contextual drivers of non-communicable or infectious disease risk (such as contaminated drinking water, agriculture and food production, hygiene, sexual behaviours, air pollution, work practices, wider land-use and environmental changes)
  • contextually driven barriers to management and treatment of infection/NCD, which may include altered diagnostic, vaccine or drug efficacy
  • feasible interventions that take account of or mitigate contextual drivers of increased rates of infection/NCD
  • identification and management of clusters of coexisting health conditions (multimorbidities) that are particularly prevalent in a particular community.

Funding Information

UKRI has made up to £20 million available for the UKRI GCRF Health and Context call.

Capacity Building

    • support and mentoring for more junior team members
