Funding Opportunity! Alliance Call for Expressions of Interest: Health Policy and Systems Research for Vaccine Uptake in Low- and Middle-Income Countries

The Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research (the Alliance) is seeking expressions of interest (EoIs) from research and policy teams based in select low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) to use health policy and systems research to respond to identified national priorities related to improving vaccine uptake. EoIs can focus on one of two tracks: reaching zero-dose and under-immunized children or addressing adolescent and adult vaccination. Teams based at in-country research institutions in the following countries are eligible to submit an EoI: Brazil, Cambodia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Mozambique, Nigeria, Pakistan, the Philippines and Viet Nam.

Through this call for expressions of interest, the Alliance is seeking brief submissions from multidisciplinary research and policy teams based in selected countries to conduct research embedded in new or ongoing policy reforms and implementation processes related to a vaccine uptake issue of identified national priority. These teams will be based at domestic research institutions (i.e., university departments, research centres or think tanks) with strong networked relationships with policy-makers, communities and other relevant key actors.

Cross-cutting topics
Additionally, cross-cutting topics include:

  • equity
  • gender
  • digital transformation
  • networked knowledge
  • integrated evidence
  • systemic risk.

EoIs should address more than one of these cross-cutting topics. EoIs are invited to consider the WHO Sex and Gender Equity in Research (SAGER) guidelines (Heidari et al., 2016) in their submissions. Successful EoIs will clearly situate themselves in one of these boxes.

Application Deadline: 24 July 2024 23:59 CEST
