The PHFI-UK consortium, which was funded by the Wellcome Trust and co-ordinated by secretariats at LSHTM and at PHFI in Delhi, was dedicated to strengthening the research and teaching skills of PHFI faculty in India. The programme offered funding opportunities to PHFI faculty members to undertake masters and doctoral studies in the UK as well as offering funding for UK-India collaborative research projects, bilateral visits and delivery of short courses in India.
