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.
