NZ Health Research Strategy 2017-2027

The Government's vision is for New Zealand to have a world- leading health research and innovation system that is founded on excellent research and improves the health and wellbeing of all New Zealanders. A set of guiding principles, strategic priorities and immediate actions will help to achieve this vision by 2027.

Responsible agencies will work to embed four guiding principles into the health research and innovation system: research excellence, transparency, partnership with Māori, and collaboration. These principles will guide all policy settings, investment decisions and operational procedures.
