Enhancing Learning and Research for Humanitarian Assistance invites applications for its open call for proposals on public health issues. This supports research that will strengthen the evidence base around public health interventions, rendering them more effective in humanitarian crises. Applicants may seek funding from one of the following streams:
- core funding – for research on health outcomes in the acute phase of an existing humanitarian crises;
- rapid trigger funding – for research in the context of a rapid-onset crisis which is yet to occur.
Proposals on the evaluation of interventions focused on health system strengthening in fragile states and protracted crises are particularly encouraged, as are proposals addressing public health issues specifically affecting vulnerable and marginalised populations.
Funding & Duration
The budget is worth up to £3.5M (approx. AUD $6.18M), however there is no ceiling on the amount that can be requested.
The maximum funding duration is three years.
