Multimorbidity is recognized as a significant and rapidly increasing health, economic and societal problem in low- middle- and high-income settings. A collective and coordinated effort is required to deliver a step-change in the prevention, measurement, management and treatment of multimorbidity through research.
As part of a framework of activities the Academy of Medical Science (AMS), the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), the Medical Research Council (MRC, part of UK Research and Innovations) and Wellcome, together with other charities, seek to enable impactful research, build best practice, and provide the evidence needed to tackle the scale of this problem.
This current GCRF global multimorbidity seed-funding call, launched and funded by the MRC, has been developed under this joint multimorbidity funders framework
It is expected that a total of £2.5 million will be made available to support research grants up to 18 months in duration and up to a maximum of £200,000.
