The National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) of the Republic of Zambia and the Fundo Nacional de Investigação (FNI) of the Republic of Mozambique are Science Granting Councils (SGCs) participating in the Science Granting Councils Initiative (SGCI) for Sub Saharan Africa. The SGCI seeks to strengthen the capacities of the participating SGCs in supporting research and evidence-based policies that will contribute to socio-economic development of the countries. The Initiative is jointly funded by the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID), Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC), South Africa’s National Research Foundation (NRF), and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA).
The SGCs (in the two countries) in contributing to their national research systems, secured Grant funding from the International Development Research Centre under the auspices of the SGCI. The said Grant aimed at supporting research projects in Health is based on a co-funding arrangement between the IDRC on one hand and the NSTC and FNI on the other.
