In 2019, we intensified our commitment to translating research into better health outcomes by announcing a new three-year strategy.

As part of the strategy, each of Sydney Health Partners’ five founding partners - Sydney, Northern Sydney and Western Sydney Local Health Districts; the Sydney Children's Hospital Network (at Westmead) and the University of Sydney – took leadership of a strategic platform of health and medical research translation.

The platforms work closely with the independent medical research institutes, clinical streams and cross-cutting themes that span the partnership in order to speed the application of evidence into clinical practice.
