About GLOBVAC

The Globvac programme supports research that can contribute to sustainable improvements in health and health equity for people in low- and lower-middle-income countries (LMIC).

This map gives a global view of research projects financed through the Globvac programme.

A number of new themes and topics have appeared since the first Globvac call, on global health and vaccination research, was announced some 15 years ago. The Global burden of disease is increasingly moving towards non-communicable diseases (NCDs), and the burden of mental health, injuries and chronic diseases put pressure on already weak health systems in many LMICs. Still, infectious diseases pose the greatest burden of disease to the poorest populations of the world, including the Sub-Saharan African countries.
