NIHR: Research and Innovation for Global Health Transformation (RIGHT)

Deadline for applications: 15th January 2020

This initiative provides research funding to support cutting-edge interdisciplinary applied health research in key areas in countries eligible for Official Development Assistance (ODA), where a strategic and targeted investment can result in a transformative impact.

NIHR RIGHT Call 3 supports equitable partnerships between researchers in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) and those in the UK to generate new research knowledge and evidence on interventions to improve outcomes for people affected by multi-morbidities in countries eligible for ODA funding.

The aims of RIGHT Call 3 are to:

  • deliver applied health research for the direct and primary benefit to the health and wealth of people living in ODA-eligible countries affected by multi-morbidities
  • ensure that the research funded through this call strengthens capacity for research and knowledge exchange through development of equitable partnerships between researchers in the ODA-eligible countries and the UK
  • promote interdisciplinary approaches to working, by specifically encouraging applications necessitating expertise and activities associated with a broad range of health-science disciplines, including but not limited to: clinical, health economics, statistics, qualitative and social sciences.
