Australian Health Research Alliance
One voice for better health through research translation
The Australian Health Research Alliance (AHRA) is the voice of the 14 Research Translation Centres, either fully accredited or recognised as emerging by the National Health and Medical Research Council.
Each Centre is a partnership of multiple health services, connected to research institutes and universities. Individually and together, our members provide unique networks, able to speed up the translation of innovation from research into better healthcare for all Australians.
AHRA’s priorities are to embed research in Australian health care, achieve better alignment of research capacity with clinical priorities and enable more, better and faster research translation to deliver patient, public and economic benefit.
Sydney Health Partners collaborates nationally through AHRA networks to respond to Australian Government priorities, and the needs of our health services and researcher communities.
AHRA's national networks include:
- Women’s health
- Indigenous health research
- Data-driven healthcare improvement
- Consumer and community involvement
AHRA has produced a position statement in collaboration with Consumers Health Forum (CHF), committing to strengthening consumer and community involvement in health research across Australia.
