Call for Applications - HRP Alliance Competitive Intraregional Grant

HRP is the main body within the United Nations system with a global mandate to lead research in sexual and reproductive health and rights and to conduct research capacity strengthening (RCS) as a core activity.

Since the inception of HRP in 1972, the grants allocated for institutional capacity strengthening have served as the main instrument for promoting essential national research to address priority needs in sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC).

In order to strengthen its Research Capacity Strengthening (RCS) and expand regional networking “The HRP Alliance” has recently been established. The HRP Alliance promotes and funds research, training institutional development, and networking that increases the participation of low- and middle-income countries in the generation and use of new knowledge for promoting sexual and reproductive health. It aims to increase coordination and collaboration between HRP priority research areas and research capacity strengthening efforts.

Applications from institutions and research teams based in LMICs based on World Bank classifications are invited for a Competitive Intraregional Grant (CIR) to support research capacity strengthening and improve the quality of care for the sexual and reproductive health services in countries and regions.
