Call for Applications: Global Forum on Humanitarian Health Research

Deadline Date – 28-May-2021 Grant Limit: Not Available

The Fogarty International Center of the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), International Development Research Centre (IDRC), UK Medical Research Council (MRC), and Wellcome Trust will host a Global Forum on Humanitarian Health Research (GFH2R) in November 2021.

The Global Forum on Humanitarian Health Research (GFH2R) seeks to bring researchers and humanitarian organizations (including NGOs, local policymakers, and international agencies) together to share experiences and promote collaboration around health research in humanitarian settings. The meeting will be built around case study presentations by researchers from regions of the world affected by humanitarian crises. The forum prioritizes the participation of researchers from low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), encourages networking and mentoring, and creates a venue for open and inclusive discussions. Objectives The objectives of the pilot forum are:

  • Facilitate learning through case study presentations on research conducted in the context of multiple, concurrent humanitarian crises;
  • Encourage cross-regional, cross-sectoral, and interdisciplinary networking between researchers and humanitarian organizations;
  • Explore the benefits and feasibility of the GFH2R model and determine if there is sufficient interest in a recurring forum.

The theme is Research in the Context of Concurrent Crises. Accordingly, the meeting will feature case studies describing health research experiences from settings beset with multiple, concurrent humanitarian crises. Case studies may describe health-related research in any type of humanitarian crises, including the COVID-19 pandemic, as long as more than one crisis affects the study population. The meeting will be held virtually and serve as a pilot to help determine if there is sufficient interest in a recurring event in the future. Type of Participants The Global Forum is seeking two types of participants for the meeting:

  • Case study presenters will present case studies of their research experiences during the forum and receive informal mentoring prior to the forum.
  • General participants will also be selected based on the geographic, disciplinary, and experiential diversity, to join the virtual event and participate in small group discussions and networking activities.

Eligibility Criteria

  • This call is open to global health researchers from any country.
  • Priority will be given to applicants from LMICs and researchers who are living in countries or regions affected by concurrent crises, though applicants from high-income countries may apply.
  • The meeting is intended for early- to mid-career scientists or those who are new to humanitarian health research, though applicants are welcome from all career and expertise levels.
  • Applicants are not limited to academic researchers. 
  • Staff from government, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and private sector organizations are encouraged to apply if their applications are focused on research.
