The UK Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) funds outstanding global health research through the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). This programme is administered by the UK Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), which reports activities under the UK Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). NIHR disburses funds to ESRC, which makes onwards disbursements to awardees. This research call addresses theme four of the cross-Research Council initiative on antimicrobial resistance (AMR): 'Behaviour within and beyond the healthcare setting', and focusses on understanding how the behaviour of public, professionals and organisations impacts on AMR. The Official Development Assistance (ODA)-funded component of this scheme is concerned with focussing high quality research on addressing an issue of global importance and will primarily and directly benefit people in low- and middle-income countries.Objectives
The call aims to expand understanding of how behaviour impacts on antimicrobial resistance (AMR): 1) how it can enhance or control the spread of AMR; 2) how it is affected by social, psychological and organisational context, cultures and history; and 3) how it can be influenced to create different future scenarios.
