The aim of the MRC’s global health research is to support work addressing health inequalities, particularly those arising in developing countries. We support research in a number of ways - through our units, institutes, and centres; grants; fellowships; and partnerships with other funders.
The Global Health Group is responsible for developing an effective strategy for addressing research needs across the spectrum of global health issues.
