The Western Australian Health Translation Network (WAHTN) brings together Western Australia’s major hospitals, medical research institutes and five universities to capitalise on the substantial State investment in new facilities for health research, patient care and population well-being.

Western Australia has a heritage of successful medical training and research discoveries that have translated into ground-breaking improvements in patient care and international changes in health policy. This record has been recognised by Nobel prizes, Australian of the Year awards, international awards and fellowships.

Western Australian Health Translation Network incorporates key themes of health care that are informed by the WA Clinical Services Plan 2010- 2020 and which illustrate outstanding integrated discovery, translation, and clinical care delivery, not only to Western Australia but also influencing national policy and increasingly driving health care outcomes throughout our time zone into South East Asia and China.



The WAHTN is a National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) recognised Advanced Health Research and Translation Centre (AHRTC). We are a member of the Australian Health Research Alliance (AHRA), which consists of seven AHRTCs and two Centres for Innovation in Regional Health (CIRH).
