Strengthening research capacity

Joint Global Health Trials launch fourth round of funding

11 June 2013

The UK Department for International Development, the Medical Research Council and the Wellcome Trust have announced the launch of the fourth call for proposals under this initiative to fund global health trials. The purpose of this scheme is to provide funding for the best proposals to generate new knowledge about interventions that will contribute to the improvement of health in low and middle income countries. The programme will give priority to proposals that are likely to produce implementable results and that are designed to address the major causes of mortality or morbidity in low and middle income countries.

Preference at the evaluation stage will be given to studies based in low and middle income countries in the following regions: Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and East Asia and the Pacific. The scheme also encourages Principal Investigators from these regions. A total of £15 million is available. This amount is expected to fund several awards.

Full details of the scheme, including details of deadlines and how to apply can be found on the Joint Global Health Trials website.
