It's time to have your say on how the national health research priorities for New Zealand are set.

The Health Research Council (HRC), Ministry of Health, and Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment have been working together to implement the New Zealand Health Research Strategy 2017-2027 (NZHRS). The vision is that by 2027, New Zealand will have a world-leading health research and innovation system that, through excellent research, improves the health and wellbeing of all New Zealanders.

The HRC is leading Strategic Priority 1, Action 1 of the NZHRS, which states that an inclusive priority-setting process will take place.

We are proposing a process to consult broadly and bring together some of the best people, both nationally and internationally, so that we can gain a shared understanding of what health research questions need to be answered here in New Zealand. If you would like to review and comment on the process, you can do so here until Monday 19th March.

Your input on the priorities themselves will be sought later in 2018.
