Elrha: Inviting applications for ‘Research for Health in Humanitarian Crises (R2HC) Programme’ to improve health outcomes by strengthening the evidence base for public health interventions in humanitarian crises.

Funding brief: R2HC aims to improve health outcomes by strengthening the evidence base for public health interventions in humanitarian crises. The R2HC programme is the product of a strategic partnership between the UK Government (DFID), the Wellcome Trust, and the UK National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).

Within the 6th call, applicants may seek funding from one of two different streams:
● Core Funding: Research concerned with health outcomes in the acute phase of an existing humanitarian crisis prioritized. Proposals focusing on resilience/disaster risk reduction or early recovery will be considered where a clear link is made with health outcomes in an acute phase.
● Rapid Response Funding Research: Research in the context of a rapid-onset crisis which is yet to occur. A mechanism has been established to be able to fund research in the acute phase of a rapid-onset crisis, for which the timeline of ‘standard’ funding programmes would be too slow.

Proposals under the call could fund research that addresses:
● Public health priorities specific to the context of a humanitarian crisis that lacks a solid existing evidence base;
● How public health interventions not specific to a humanitarian context can be adapted and delivered, and their effectiveness maximized, in a humanitarian context;
● Health systems, including coordination of the public health response in humanitarian contexts;
● Specific interventions designed to improve health outcomes, such as cash transfers

The potential scale of impact of funded research is an important criteria and they therefore strongly encourage applications that focus on:
● Comparative (multi-country) research
● Research that is replicable is multiple contexts
● Multi-sector integrated responses
