This funding will support research that contributes evidence to strengthen regional health security. It will promote translation of that research into health policy and practice in the region and contribute to the growth of Australian researchers’ experience of, and expertise in, health security issues.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) has established an arrangement with NHMRC for an application and assessment process that will enable applicants to apply for funding from the DFAT Indo-Pacific Centre for Health Security.

The DFAT Stronger Systems for Health Security call for research opened 9 October 2017 and closed 6 December 2018.

The objectives of the research call were:

  • to support high quality and collaborative health systems and/or policy research that contributes evidence to strengthen regional health security, in particular in Southeast Asia and the Pacific
  • to promote translation of that research into health policy and/or practice in the region
  • to increase the capacity and expertise of research institutions in the region in health systems and/or policy research related to health security, and
  • to contribute to the growth of Australian researchers’ experience of, and expertise in, health security issues in the region, for the benefit of Australia and the region.

Successful research projects were announced by the Minister for Foreign Affairs on 2 July 2018.
