Enhancing policy-maker capacity
In October 2008, the Alliance HPSR was joined by the UK-based Wellcome Trust to issue a second Call for Proposals on "Enhancing capacity to apply research evidence in policy-making". To further the capacity development objectives of both the Alliance and Wellcome Trust, the Call was targeted to researchers in low-income countries. The project supports developing and evaluating innovative approaches to enhance policy-makers capacity to use evidence in the policy process. A total of five grants were awarded; two were funded by the Alliance, one was funded jointly by both the Alliance and the Wellcome Trust and two by the Wellcome Trust.
