The National Institute of Health and Care Research (NIHR) are the UK’s largest funder of health and care research and provides the people, facilities and technology that enables research to thrive. They work with a range of stakeholders to deliver and enable world-class research that transforms people's lives, promotes economic growth and advances science. One of NIHR’s key aims is to continue to involve patients, carers and the public in their work.

This resource guide from the NIHR Research and Innovation for Global Health Transformation (RIGHT) programme was developed in collaboration with Erica Nelson, a researcher at The Institue of Development Studies, and was published in September 2019.

It provides community engagement links, resources, references and learning to offer research teams and funding applicants a starting point for thinking critically about the assumptions and expectations they might carry with them as they embark on what might be a new way of working, or a well-honed way of working that is being tested in a new geographic context.
