About Us

Our core focus is to make health research a higher priority in the minds of NZers. 


  1. To influence policy (Outcome – NZ govt invests more in health research)
  2. To influence charitable donations (Outcome - NZers give more to health research)
  3. To influence industry (Outcome - business-friendly policies enable increased health research investment & jobs here)


  1. Create a collective voice for health research in New Zealand (memberships across industry, charity, patient groups, research institutes).
  2. Annual public opinion poll (so we know what people think is important, and we can tailor our media/public education campaigns accordingly)
  3. Advocacy activities (co-ordinated submissions to government, other campaigns to raise profile of health research in the public mind).
