Research for Health in Humanitarian Crises (R2HC)

The Research for Health in Humanitarian Crises (R2HC) programme aims to improve health outcomes by strengthening the evidence base for public health interventions in humanitarian crises.

The programme is the product of a strategic partnership between the Department for International Development (DFID) and the Wellcome Trust, with ELRHA overseeing the programme’s execution and management.

An Overview of the Evidence Review is available here and a presentation of its preliminary findings can be viewed here. The full report will be available in October.

Research collaborations
The R2HC programme will facilitate research collaborations between public health researchers and operational humanitarian agencies. If you would like ELRHA to assist with finding research partners for your organisation, click here to download the partnership brokering form.

Rapid response grants facility
The programme will also establish a rapid response grants facility set aside for pre-approved research projects to be undertaken in the acute phase of a humanitarian crisis. Further details will be available in due course.
