Health Systems Research Initiative (HSRI) Call 8 Research Grant - outline stage
This Research Grant call, funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC), funds research to strengthen and improve health systems in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). This call welcomes multidisciplinary, collaborative and multi-country/multi-site applications that address a clearly defined challenge faced by health systems.

Request for proposals: research into language-based equity in African health science research
This research will form part of Wellcome’s Priority Area ‘Research Ecosystems in Africa and
Asia’, which aims to drive self-sustaining research ecosystems that generate knowledge and
improve health, including through promoting independent research leadership in Africa. It will
address a critical barrier: the impact of English being one of the dominant global languages
of science on researchers in Africa whose first language is not English.
