End of the funding phase by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ)

See progress and impact achieved as a result of BMZ-supported measures

The German Alliance for Global Health Research was launched in 2020 with support from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and is set to receive funding into at least 2025. Complementing this support, from 2022-2023, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) provided additional funding to strengthen cooperation with partners in low- and middle-income countries. As this BMZ-funding phase has come to an end, here are some highlights we achieved through our collaboration:

  • A total of 61 project events were held in 8 countries with over 3400 participants, of which 98% are from LMICs. All 8 project teams have documented their results in case studies, which can be found here.
  • The newly launched "Meet our Partners" campaign strengthens the visibility of researchers from LMICs in the network. The strategy paper "Enabling International Collaboration for Global Health Research" sets out recommendations for a vision, goals, and priority measures for the internationalization of GLOHRA.
  • Regular meetings between the BMBF and BMZ underscored the importance of synergizing funding streams, and has led to fruitful discussions on global health research actions and policy. The collaborative efforts have surpassed targeted aims, demonstrating the strength of global networks and collaboration.

These initiatives have not only strengthened research partnerships but have also laid the foundation for sustainable collaboration. We are proud of what has been achieved during this funding phase and looking forward to even more achievements ahead!
