Rapid response grants can be applied for alongside our core grants. They are unique in that funding can be allocated to undertake research in the context of a rapid-onset crisis which hasn’t yet occurred. Rapid response grants aren’t subject to the time frame as the core grants. With rapid response grants we ‘pre-approve’ funding that is triggered later, when the foreseen humanitarian crisis occurs. Proposals on the following themes particularly welcomed: 1) Addressing public health needs in urban humanitarian contexts e.g. public health issues related to the Syria crisis and its impact on neighbouring countries; 2) Improving the efficiency and quality of service delivery, including health system strengthening and cost analysis/cost effectiveness studies.
