The WA Department of Health is inviting all interested stakeholders and organisations to make a submission to an online consultation regarding the Health and Medical Research and Innovation Strategy, which will inform the activities of the State Government’s Future Health Research and Innovation (FHRI) Fund.
The FHRI Fund is a State Government commitment whereby the Western Australian Future Fund will be re-purposed to enable the annual investment earnings from the Fund’s $1.3 billion capital to be used to support health and medical research, innovation and commercialisation.
The online consultation complements a face-to-face forum that occurred on Monday 13 May and both build on prior consultations, including the Deputy Premier’s Health and Medical Research Roundtable in December 2017 and work conducted by Deloitte Access Economics on behalf of the Department of Health in 2018. The contributions of stakeholders to these prior consultations are gratefully acknowledged.
Stakeholders who attended the forum on 13 May are also invited to make a submission to the online consultation.
The link to the online consultation is shown below, which will remain open until 7 June 2019.
