The proposed research project must take place in at least one of the targeted countries: Ethiopia, Ghana, Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, Nigeria, Senegal, South Sudan, and Tanzania. (Research can also take place concurrently in other countries.) Eligibility: Teams must include: • an African researcher as a principal applicant (with citizenship or permanent residency from an African country), based in an institution located in one of the targeted countries • a Canadian researcher as a co-principal applicant based in a Canadian institution, and • a relevant local, district, or national level decision-maker as a co-principal applicant, from the same country as the principal applicant’s institution. Other co-applicant(s) may be based in countries other than the targeted ones. The research project must include the country in which the principal applicant’s institution is located. The affiliated institution of the principal applicant must be African, have independent legal status, and capacity to administer funds.

Two inter-related program components, Implementation Research Teams and Health Policy and Research Organizations, have been designed to achieve the program’s goals. Implementation Research Teams will generate evidence on interventions and their effective implementation as well as scale-up to improve health and health equity outcomes. These interventions can include policies, programs, and services that involve multiple strategies and require implementation both within and outside the health sector. The selected teams will be associated with a Health Policy and Research Organization whose role will be to link research findings to policymaking in the sub-Saharan region. Proposed research must aim at addressing at least one of the four program priorities: • high-impact community based interventions • quality facility based interventions • policy environment to improve care services and outcomes • human resources.
