This partnership between the UK’s National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and Wellcome funds global health researchers who focus on health priorities in low- and middle-income countries. 


The aim of the partnership between DHSC Global Health Research and Wellcome is to support high quality applied global health research in areas of mutual interest, with the following components: 1. Develop and deliver a portfolio of Fellowships for applicants from low and middle-income countries (LMICs) using the established Wellcome Trust International Fellowship scheme, expanding this to encourage applications in targeted areas where skills shortages have been identified, which align with the priority areas of DHSC global health research and Wellcome and where there is an identified need to build research capability (skills gap). The first areas under discussion are global mental health, non-communicable diseases, snake bite and multimorbidity. 2. Support Major Awards in eligible global health research areas (through Collaborative Awards, Investigator Awards and Senior Research Fellowship schemes) in collaboration with the Wellcome Science Division where NIHR co-funds a small number of joint NIHR-Wellcome awards (50:50) in strategically relevant areas. 3. Support a policy-uptake initiative with Wellcome Global Health Policy to facilitate global health research uptake into policy and practice.
