Strategic Social, Economic & Behavioural Research

(11 October 2004)

The World Health Organisation steering committee on strategic social, economic and behavioural research supports basic research into: the determinants of inequality of access to prevention, therapy and information; the implications of changing economic, social, political and civil structures for disease persistence, emergence, resurgence and factors affecting them; the social and economic impact of infectious disease on populations; the effects of globalisation and widening social inequalities on transmission dynamics of disease, and on health policy and health systems and services; and the implications of linkages between global, national and local level policies for their ability to respond to key health issues related to tropical diseases.

Grants of $25,000 to $30,000 per year are available for one or two years.
