This grant represents CIDA’s support to the Global Health Research Initiative’s (GHRI) secretariat. The GHRI uses these funds, along with funding from other Canadian government departments and agencies, to achieve its mandate. The GHRI is a research funding partnership of five Canadian federal agencies and departments whose mandates span health, research and development assistance: CIDA, Health Canada, the International Development Research Centre, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, and the Public Health Agency of Canada. The GHRI aims to improve health and strengthen health systems by supporting collaboration between researchers and research end-users in Canada and low- and middle-income countries. The GHRI works to coordinate Government of Canada research efforts for effective, evidence-based interventions in the field of global health, to inform the work of CIDA and other Canadian departments and agencies. The GHRI Secretariat provides support to research programs and the general functioning of the Initiative.
