Guidance for Applicants

Priorities and focus of RIGHT Call 6 (Scope)

NIHR is seeking applications for RIGHT Call 6 that focus on the development and evaluation of interventions and strategies for improved prevention, treatment and management of multiple long-term conditions, including:

– interventions to prevent stepwise progression of MLTCs once one long-term condition or infection has been diagnosed

– interventions to improve treatment, management and care of patients with infections prevalent in LMICs that have a known association with development or exacerbation of NCDs

– interventions for the treatment and prevention of the development of MLTCs in children and young adults driven by malnutrition, multiple chronic infections and poverty

– scalable treatment and care approaches that integrate the management of MLTCs/disease clusters associated with infection(s) and/or NCD(s)

– new treatment packages, new models of care and community-based interventions

– healthcare systems strengthening: research into health care system improvements for treatment, management and care for those affected by MLTCs in LMICs may be included as a component of the research.

Research that leads to a better understanding of risk factors, cultural attitudes and practices influencing the development of MLTCs can be included provided it is part of a wider programme of work contributing to the implementation or evaluation of one or more interventions.

In recognition that the COVID-19 outbreak continues to impact global health systems, applicants should consider the context of COVID-19 where relevant to their research proposal, both in terms of project planning and the generalisability of outcomes.
