To be launched in July 2008
The Small Research Grants project is a new initiative of the World Health Organization's (WHO) World Alliance for Patient Safety. Its aim is to stimulate research studies on patient safety priority areas by providing seed funding for small research projects.
The WHO World Alliance would welcome research proposals that primarily focus on identifying, developing, and/or testing local improvement interventions for patient safety, as well as studies on cost-effectiveness of risk-reducing strategies. Other justified priorities identified at global, regional or local levels with potential for translation into policy and practice will also be considered.
