The WHO Regional Office for the Eastern Mediterranean and the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR) have announced the call for applications of the Joint EMRO/TDR Small Grants Scheme for implementation research in infectious diseases of poverty.
The goal of the TDR Strategy is to foster research on infectious diseases of poverty that lead to health improvement, strengthen research capacity of the individuals and institutions in developing countries, and develop implementation strategies and solutions that respond to health needs of these countries.
It also supports translation of research results into policy and practice by improving health and promoting the engagement of individuals and communities in using research evidence to reduce the disease burden in their respective countries.
This call supports the generation of evidence from local research for the prevention and control of tropical diseases in the Eastern Mediterranean Region countries and takes into account the outcomes of two activities at the Regional Office:
“Supporting Research for Health in the EMR”; and the “Regional Health Research Prioritization” workshop.
It emphasizes the importance of using implementation/ operational research for ALL priority topics listed below.
In addition, the call welcomes research which links more than one priority in the list below, as well as involving EMR-based healthcare delivery and disease control programmes with research / academic institutions.
