Promoting a healthy Australia (The Australian National Preventive Health Agency) invites submissions for the second consultation process to develop the National preventive health research strategy 2012-2016.
When finalised, this strategy will inform the decisions about research funds distributed by the agency, the research partnerships in which the agency engages, and the research tasks directly commissioned by the agency.
The strategy will be provided to the National Health and Medical Research Council and Australian Research Council, all state and territory governments, the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing and other Commonwealth agencies, and a range of grant making foundations for their consideration in funding and facilitating preventive health research.
Stakeholders interested in working to improve preventive health research are many and diverse, including many Indigenous organisations. The agency welcomes submissions from all stakeholders to finalise this important guide for preventive health research in Australia.
Submissions will inform the further development and refinement of the final strategy.
The final Draft national preventive health research strategy, including the research priorities, will be prepared for discussion by the expert committees (alcohol, obesity, tobacco and research) and the agency's advisory council.
The draft strategy and instructions for submitting comments can be found on the Australian National Preventative Health Agency website below. Submissions close Friday 31 August 2012.
