- The Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research (HPSR) is an international collaboration, based in WHO Geneva, that aims to promote the generation and use of health policy and systems research as a means to improve the health systems of developing countries.

The Alliance is launching this Call for Proposals so that it can provide support to national processes for evidence-informed policy making. The Alliance has allocated up to 500,000 USD for this Call and intends to award several grants to institutions in different regions for a period of up to three years.

The Alliance may consider extending grants beyond this period but only for those institutions that show good performance. The Alliance plans to award 3-4 grants, however the final number and size of the grants will depend on the quality and cost of the applications received.

As the work focuses upon evidence to policy linkages at the national level, the Alliance HPSR particularly encourages applications from national (or sub-national) institutions in developing countries. In recent years the Alliance has collaborated closely with the:
