Joint Global Health Trials (JGHT) Call 11 – outline stage

Project
Description: 
This scheme seeks to support research that addresses the health problems affecting low and middle income countries (LMICs) by funding definitive trials that are likely to produce implementable and generalisable results to change policy and practice. The purpose of this scheme is to provide funding for the best proposals to generate new knowledge about interventions that will contribute to the improvement of health in low and middle income countries (LMICs). The scheme is focused on late-stage clinical and health intervention trials evaluating efficacy and effectiveness. Call 11 specifically invites applications for definitive randomised controlled trials (RCTs) that provide generalisable data, beyond a single country or setting. The evidence generated should be robust and relevant to international and regional policy makers and directly answer questions to change policy and guidance. Priorities for this call Trials should address the major causes of mortality or morbidity in LMICs, particularly those that affect the most vulnerable populations. The scheme will give priority to proposals for definitive trials that are likely to produce implementable and generalisable results to change policy and practice. Stakeholders, such as policy makers, should be engaged throughout the research process in order to ensure trial results are implementable, scalable and in line with policy needs. All applications must include investigators/partners based in the country/ies where the trial will take place. We are open to funding a smaller number of more ambitious trials than in previous years.
