The Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research is inviting proposals for up to eight country case studies examining how political economy factors influence the design, adoption, and implementation of health taxes at national or sub-national levels.
Informed by qualitative data from key country stakeholders, research teams will develop analytical case studies based on a common conceptual framework.
Principal Investigators must be based in an LMIC research institution, but special priority will be given to the following countries: Brazil, China, Colombia, Egypt, India, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nigeria, Paraguay, the United Republic of Tanzania, Timor-Leste, Uganda, Ukraine, and Zambia. The case study proposed should be about one of the above countries.
- Teams should be gender-balanced with women comprising at least 50% of the research team. Teams should ideally include, or at the least emphasize and highlight links to policy-makers.
- The experience of researchers as reflected in the proposal as well as the CV of the PI should reflect experience both in health policy analysis and examining the role of political economy considerations in health promotion activities.
- Teams must, in their proposals, be able to demonstrate their plans for access to data sources relevant to answering their research questions.
- Individuals from countries not listed above are not eligible to apply as Principal Investigators. However, organizations based in the countries above can collaborate with individuals and organizations based in high-income countries to submit a proposal based on the condition that not more than 15% of the total grant value can go to individuals or organizations based in high-income countries.
Grant size: $55000 and above
Deadline: December 23rd, 2022
