Call for applications: Small Grants Scheme for Operational / Implementation Research to tackle the threat of Antimicrobial Resistance

Joint TDR and WHO regional offices for Africa, the Americas, Europe, and South-East Asia

Deadline for submission: 15 July 2019


The Small Grants Scheme is a joint initiative of TDR and WHO regional offices under the current TDR Strategy. TDR is sponsored by the United Nations Children’s Fund, the United Nations Development Programme, the World Bank and the World Health Organization, and is hosted at WHO. It supports implementation research on infectious diseases of poverty that leads to health improvement and strengthening research capacity of individuals and institutions in low- and middle-income countries. TDR also supports translating research results into policy and improved health practices and promotes the engagement of individuals and communities in using research evidence to reduce the disease burden in their respective countries. TDR is also using Structured Operational Research and Training IniTiative (SORT IT) to build operational research capacity that will generate and promote use of evidence on the emergence, spread and health impact of AMR for tacking this global problem.


Antimicrobial resistance is a global public health challenge. AMR makes standard treatments ineffective and allows infections to persist and spread. Because the drivers of antimicrobial resistance lie in humans, animals, plants, food and the environment, there is a need for robust evidence to guide One Health interventions that can contain AMR.


The scope of the call is to cover a spectrum of studies that utilize operational or implementation research methodology, focusing on a One Health approach including human, animal and/or environmental health as one of the core principles of an effective response against the AMR problem.

To consult the statistician after an experiment is finished is often merely to ask him to conduct a post mortem examination. He can perhaps say what the experiment died of. -Ronald A. Fisher.
