Elrha’s Research for Health in Humanitarian Crises Programme (R2HC) - ‘Open Call’ (deadline: 16th August)

R2HC aims to improve health outcomes by strengthening the evidence base for public health interventions in humanitarian crises. This ‘Open Call’ encourages research that informs the prioritisation of public health humanitarian interventions and maximising value for money.

R2hC-Elhra

Since 2014, R2HC has funded over 30 grants, awarding almost £14 million to organisations working in humanitarian health. The research funded covers a diverse range of topics from non-communicable disease and WASH, to maternal and child health. Please read more about the work that R2HC funds here.

This  ‘Open Call’ invites proposals that address specific or multiple public health issues by gathering evidence with the potential to contribute to improved public health outcomes in humanitarian contexts.

All proposals will be expected to demonstrate the potential scale and impact of the proposed research and, to do this, you might like to consider adopting the following approaches:

  • Comparative (multi-country) research
  • Research that is replicable in multiple contexts
  • Multi-sector integrated responses
  • Research that advances new methodological approaches in challenging context
  • Research outcomes that are clearly linked to improving humanitarian responses.

Up to £3m of funding is available to fund a wide range of grant sizes (including grants for large comparative studies that have the potential to generate significant impact) for a maximum duration of 36 months (24 months for the research to be conducted, followed by 12 months for uptake and dissemination) . There is no ceiling on the amount that can be requested.

The Global Challenges Initiative is a Strategic Research Initiative of the University of Cambridge that aims to enhance the contribution of its research towards addressing global challenges and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.
