|Target audience: Open call for researchers based at South African universities, science councils (including the SAMRC) and other public research organisations.
Topics: Sexual, Reproductive, Maternal and Newborn Health
The SAMRC, through its Health Systems Research Unit (HSRU), is seeking to fund proposals from South African public research organizations to strengthen health systems for improved sexual, reproductive, maternal and newborn health. Improving SRMNH requires a multifactorial approach to intervention design across the spectrum of prevention and care, comprised of a package of commodities, adequate numbers and distribution of clinical staff, and skills and enforced standardized protocols for timely diagnosis, treatment and referral. This RFA aims to support:
Priority research areas include:
The research outputs would improve access to quality sexual, reproductive, antenatal, obstetric and new born care.
The total amount available for year 2 is approximately R435 000 (R145 000 per project if three projects are funded). The total amount available for year 3 is R168 000 (R56 000 per project if three projects are funded. Applicants do not need to submit budgets for years 2 and 3 if there is no need for funding support during years 2 and 3. Priority will be given to projects in the following catchment areas:
Projects outside these catchment areas will be considered if they address a priority problem and could provide solutions to SRMNH challenges in South Africa
Proposals will only be considered for funding if they meet the funding eligibility requirements as specified in the RFA document.
All applications must be submitted on the SAMRC templates. Please see the links below for the relevant application documents.
Please direct any enquires on the RFA to firstname.lastname@example.org.
