RIGHT funds cutting-edge interdisciplinary applied health research in key areas in ODA-eligible countries where a strategic and targeted investment can result in a transformative impact.
Through RIGHT, we want to:
- Deliver research of primary benefit to the health and wealth of the poorest individuals living in ODA-eligible countries, typically through research for the prevention of ill health and optimal disease management
- Strengthen capacity for research and knowledge exchange through equitable partnerships between researchers in the UK and ODA-eligible countries
- Promote interdisciplinary approaches to working (including, but not limited to: clinical, health economics, statistics, qualitative and social sciences), to ensure that research objectives can be delivered.
RIGHT calls are a two stage competition, with independent peer review and international panel assessment. Applicants successful at Stage 1 and invited to submit a Stage 2 application will be eligible to apply for funding of up to £10,000 to support proposal and partnership development during the Stage 2 application drafting process.
Awards of typical range £3-5 million (maximum of £5 million) over 3-4 years are available for ODA-eligible research, starting January 2020.
- Mental health research in ODA-eligible countries, through supporting applied research on the development and evaluation of interventions to improve outcomes for those affected by mental health issues.

Critérios de elegibilidade
Applications are invited from UK-based (England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland) Higher Education Institutions, and research institutes. Non-UK institutions in High-Income Countries can be included in the application if there is a strong justification as to why the expertise they are bringing cannot be found in the UK or in an ODA-eligible country; evidence for this, needs to be provided in the application.
Applications from joint groupings of UK institutions will be considered, though a lead UK institution must be specified.
Please note that for RIGHT Call 2 applications, it is mandatory to include a co-applicant or Joint Lead Applicant in an ODA-eligible country relevant to the research proposal.
The research must be focused on improving the health and welfare of the poorest and most vulnerable people in ODA-eligible countries. In order to be eligible to receive ODA funding, applications must demonstrate how they meet ODA compliance criteria and outline:
- Which country or countries on the DAC list of ODA-eligible countries will directly benefit?
- How the application is directly and primarily relevant to the development challenges of those countries?
- How the outcomes will promote the health and welfare of a country or countries on the DAC list?
