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