Project Brief:

In December 2008, the Wellcome Trust awarded a strategic award to PHFI and a consortium of 10 UK Institutions, which was a 5-year collaborative programme, titled “Enabling Public Health Foundation of India’s network of Indian Institutes of Public Health” for the purpose of supporting PHFI’s Future Faculty Program; fostering research capabilities; and enabling training of existing public health staff in the country. The WT Grant forms an important contribution to the achievement of PHFI’s aspiration to set up IIPHs across the country to support teaching, training and research needs.

The goals of this strategic award were to:

  • Help create public health training resource through a pool of trained faculty at multiple levels and develop India relevant learning resources.
  • Foster a quality research environment in India through funding seed projects and creating North - South linkages with research institutes of repute.
  • Assist India to strengthen its public health capacity.

An extension grant was awarded in 2013 to build on this award by strengthening the research competency of returning and recently recruited PhDs and helping them become fully-fledged, independent researchers. The extension phase aims to leverage the skills and resources of the PHFI-UK consortium and strengthen inter-and intra-country research, education and practice links. The major activities within the scope of the extension phase are, Research Career Training Programme designed for early career faculty and researchers at PHFI and Indian Institute of Public Health (IIPHs), Career Development Fellowships for faculty/research staff at PHFI/IIPHs to acquire skills and competencies for building a research career and creating an enabling research environment at PHFI and its institutes.
