PHR themed calls

The PHR Programme participated in the NIHR call for evaluative research for long-term conditions in children and young people. 

The research aims to provide the evidence base to improve the health outcomes for children and young people that result from long-term conditions. The call is in support of the annual report of the Chief Medical Officer 2012 entitled “Our Children Deserve Better: Prevention Pays”. 

This call is now closed. Funding decisions will be made around March 2015.

To support applications to the PHR Programme in response to the NIHR Long-term conditions themed call, we ran a webinar about applying to the call on 1 April. View the webinar.

Antimicrobial Resistance (2013)

During 2013, the NIHR issued a call for research on preventing the development and spread of Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR). Eight of the NIHR managed research programmes participated.

This call for research proposals was a key component of the NIHR's response to the publication of the 2nd volume of the 2011 Annual Report of the Chief Medical Officer: Infections and the rise of antimicrobial resistance. It will also support the Department of Health-led UK Antimicrobial Resistance Strategy, which sets out how the challenges outlined in the report will be met.

The application deadline for this funding opportunity has now passed and the applications are being processed.
