The UK Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) funds outstanding global health research through the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). The NIHR has identified health policy and systems research (HPSR) as a strategic global health research priority. Through a process of stakeholder consultation, NIHR aims to develop a portfolio of activities that will support health policy and systems research for the direct and primary benefit of people in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC).


1) Support applied and implementation research that promotes the coverage, quality, efficiency and equity of health systems in LMICs. 2) Leverage NIHR expertise in health services and health systems research, and work with leading health research funders to develop initiatives that complement the existing global HSR funding landscape. 3) Contribute towards the achievement of Universal Health Coverage (SDG 3.8).
