International Development Research @ Cambridge


The Wellcome Trust (WT) and The Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research (AHPSR) have partnered to offer a new funding opportunity: Heightening Institutional capacity for Government use of Health Research (HIGH-Res).This award seeks to fund one consortium of research and policy-making institutions in low- and lower-middle-income countries.


The aim of the call is to evaluate methods for strengthening the capacity of ministries of health in low- and lower-middle-income countries to make better use of health research.


This call targets collaborative consortia.

The lead research organisation in your consortium must be a recognised institution that can carry out high-quality research, eg host a grant and lead research programmes. The policy-making institutions must be located within ministries of health.

Other relevant stakeholders, eg civil society representatives, can also be included in the consortium. 

The consortium must be based across low- and lower-middle income countries, but up to 20% of the grant can be used to support participants from other countries.

Level of funding

A total of $1 million is available for this call to fund one consortium for a maximum duration of 36 months.


For full details of this funding opportunity please see the WT website.
