The Global Maternal and Neonatal Health funding call is a joint initiative between the Medical Research Council, partly funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF), and the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). The purpose of this call is to address the burden of maternal and neonatal mortality and morbidity in low and middle-income countries (LMIC), by funding high-quality proposals across the spectrum of basic to applied research. Awards will support multidisciplinary research, build and strengthen research partnerships, and promote capacity building in global maternal and neonatal health research. Applications are particularly encouraged from principal investigators based at organisations in LMIC, as well as from eligible research organisations based in the UK working in equitable partnership with LMIC colleagues.
