We aim to support UK and low- and middle-income country scientists to establish partnerships, participate in global health research opportunities and respond to global challenges in biomedical and health research.
MRC has a broad portfolio of global health investments, spanning:
- fundamental discovery science
- intervention development
- clinical trials
- implementation science.
The investments are delivered through our MRC units in the Gambia and Uganda, as well as granting programmes such as the African Research Leaders scheme and the Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases.
We will build on our historical portfolio of global infections research whilst strengthening other areas of major health needs such as:
- chronic non-communicable diseases
- mental health
- maternal, neonatal, child and adolescent health.
