NIHR Delivering a Sustainable Health and Care System

  Tuesday, 05 Apr 2022 | Funding Deadline

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) have issued a cross-programme call for research into the evaluation of interventions or services to support the delivery of a more sustainable UK health and care system, including mitigating the effects of climate change on health and care delivery. For the purposes of this call, the term ‘sustainability’ is defined as climate sustainability as opposed to financial, political, cultural or environmental sustainability

The expectation is that research funded through this call leads to the development of practical, real-world solutions with demonstrable impact in the short, medium and longer term. The NIHR is also particularly interested in the differential impact on inequalities that result from decreasing carbon emissions specifically ensuring that reductions in carbon emissions reduce, and do not increase, health inequalities.

The following NIHR research programmes are participating in this themed call:
