The Global Health Research Centres programme funds research-driven partnerships between institutions in low and middle income countries (LMICs) and in the UK. The Centres undertake high quality research and strengthen LMIC institutional capacity to undertake, manage and disseminate high-quality applied health research. The Global Health Research Centres programme funds high quality applied health research in LMICs and supports the development of a critical mass of sustainable, competitive research capacity. By delivering high quality research evidence and strengthening research capacity at all levels, our Global Health Research Centres will improve health outcomes for people in LMICs and support sustainable growth of the LMIC research ecosystem.


The Global Health Research Centres programme funds ambitious, transformative, innovative and collaborative consortia of research institutions in the UK and in LMICs that are eligible for Official Development Assistance (ODA). High quality research and research capacity strengthening in LMICs are equally essential components of the programme. Each funding call addresses an area where there is a need for coordinated, high quality research in LMICs to increase the global evidence base. The first funding call will fund and designate NIHR Global Health Research Centres in non-communicable diseases. Centres also have a focus on capacity building and training in partner LMIC institutions, through: -strengthening career pathways for researchers, from masters students to senior academics -developing and retaining a trained and networked global cohort of experts and future research leaders -supporting the training and development of research managers and other non-academic staff.
