The NIHR fifth Research and Innovation for Global Health Transformation (RIGHT) call will support targeted research to strengthen health service delivery and resilience in low and middle income countries (LMICs) in the context of extreme weather events.

The NIHR is seeking programmes of applied health research that can strengthen health service delivery and resilience in LMICs in the context of extreme weather events caused by the changing climate.

This funding opportunity is open to lead applicants from UK or LMIC institutions. Please refer to the Guidance for Applicants for further details about applicant eligibility and other documents in the Supporting Information sidebar for full details about this funding call.

RIGHT typically awards funding of £1-3 million (maximum of £3 million) for research projects with a duration of 3-5 years.

Applicants should submit their RIGHT Call 5 Stage 1 application via the online Research Management System (RMS). The call will close at 13:00 UK time on Wednesday, 29 June 2022.

NIHR will not accept the same or substantially similar applications across multiple NIHR Global Health Research calls. NIHR will accept applications from the same or similar teams across more than one NIHR Global Health Research call where the aims and research proposals are substantially different.
