Eligibility

This call is open to research organizations, think thanks, and organizations based in low and middle-income countries (LMICs) with a primary mission and mandate to inform public policy through research.  

Candidates must:

  • Have legal corporate registration in an LMIC (not restricted to the five countries listed above)
  • Demonstrate substantive history conducting cross-cutting social and economic research relevant to the Global RECAP program
  • Be eligible to conduct research in any one of Global RECAP’s five focus countries
  • Have independent legal status (or “legal personality”) and the ability to receive and administer foreign funds (capable of contracting in their own right and name) in their respective countries
  • Have been established for at least two financial years

Scope

This call builds on Global RECAP’s goal to strengthen public health policies through non-communicable disease research. IDRC’s role in the partnership is to build and use evidence that will complement the Global RECAP program activities.

Research funded through this call will support the evidence needs of policymakers in LMICs and will strengthen multi-level dialogues, particularly through the engagement and empowerment of civil society actors.

Specifically, IDRC aims to identify institutions in LMICs with the capacity to collaborate with other stakeholders to prioritize evidence needs and conduct research to meet those needs, in the following areas:

  • Non-communicable disease prevention research
  • Policy studies
