Health and medical research

Health and medical research helps us to identify effective, evidence-based ways to deliver better health outcomes. Research takes place in a complex ecosystem involving health services, universities, medical research institutes, government, and industry.

We aim to improve the health and wellbeing of Victorians by supporting research aligned to our translational research priorities and principles. We want to support and partner with researchers and health services to translate research findings into policy and practice that will improve population and public health, and our healthcare system.

We support health services and academic partners to undertake research through investment, facilitating access to data and systems, and creating links to policy and program areas. We maintain a focus on reducing health inequities and  translating research into policy and practice, enabling more Victorians to lead healthier lives.
