Request for Letters of Intent: Decision-Maker Led Implementation Research to Address Priority Immunization Issues

The Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research, in collaboration with GAVI and UNICEF, invites letters of intent for research that seeks to enable the effective implementation of immunization programmes within health systems in priority countries. Grants of up to USD 70,000 – 100,000 will be available to support research studies of up to 12 months in duration.

Implementers working with researchers are eligible to submit proposals in response to this call. The Principal Investigator must be an implementer—an individual directly involved in the implementation of immunization programmes in a health system in a priority country (see below for list of countries). Programme managers, district health officers, practitioners, and front line health workers are typical examples of such individuals. Additionally, the research team must include at least one researcher affiliated with an academic or research institution based in the study country. Please note that both these conditions must be met for the proposal to be eligible for funding.

Deadline for submission: 15 March 2015 23:59 GMT
