The new Board will fund global health research that is embedded within local contexts in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Proposals should focus on ideas that will have real world practical application to improve health.
Proposals are encouraged to be multidisciplinary. The research objectives need to focus on health impact, but inputs and activities need not be limited to the health sector. All applications are expected to include effective, relevant and sustainable research capacity building and must be eligible for Official Development Assistance (ODA).
The Board remit has a broad focus and includes the MRC’s existing global health priority areas such as environment and health, urban health, maternal and neonatal health, adolescent health, early childhood development, multimorbidity, and implementation research.
