Pacific health research requires the active involvement of Pacific peoples as researchers, advisors, stakeholders and participants.
Pacific health research design, methods and approaches aim to be responsive to changing Pacific contexts, underpinned by Pacific cultural values and beliefs, and conducted in accordance with Pacific ethical standards, values and aspirations.
All HRC rounds and research investment streams are open to Pacific health research and researchers.
We award the majority of our funding through contestable funding rounds and to ideas that come from researchers themselves. For all upcoming funding opportunities, refer to our Funding Calendar
If applying for ring-fenced Pacific health research funding, your research should aim to make significant improvements in, or a contribution to, Pacific health outcomes.
