Apply for global health funding to address the management of multiple long-term conditions (MLTC) in the context of non-communicable diseases (NCD).

You must:

be based at a UK research organisation eligible for UK Research and Innovation funding

work in partnership with co-investigators based in low or middle income countries where the work will take place

Your research must:

use an implementation science approach to study interventions to address management of MLTC, including at least one NCD

have clear implications for reducing health inequalities

Up to £5,000,000 is available (subject to quality). We expect to fund several projects.

Your project must run for three to five years.


COMMENT (NPW): Management of multiple long-term conditions is especially challenging and requires access to relevant, reliable information in a format that the general public, patients, health workers and policymakers can readily apply.

HIFA has substantial experience in supporting research through multistakeholder interaction on the HIFA forums (and, from 2024, webinars). If your research would benefit from this approach, please consider inclusion of a small budget line on your next funding proposal. Contact:
