Public Health Research (PHR)

The PHR Programme funds research to evaluate non-NHS interventions intended to improve the health of the public and reduce inequalities in health. The scope is multi-disciplinary and broad, covering a wide range of interventions that improve public health.

The Programme will fund both primary and secondary research; precise methods will need to be appropriate to the question being asked and the feasibility of the research. For more information on the programme remit, please visit the remit page.

PHR research serves a variety of key stakeholders including: decision-makers in local government; primary care organisations and other local public services; third sector organisations; relevant national agencies (e.g. NICE) concerned with improving public health and reducing health inequalities; researchers; public health practitioners and the public.
