National Alliance of Provincial Health Research Organizations (NAPHRO)


The National Alliance of Provincial Health Research Organizations (NAPHRO) was created in 2003 to promote increased dialogue, linkages and partnership activities among Canada's provincial health research funding agencies. Alliance members meet (via teleconference and face-to-face meetings) on a regular basis to share information and identify potential opportunities for working collaboratively on common issues.

Examples of common interests

  • Increased knowledge of peer agency programs and activities
  • Identifying opportunities for collaboration e.g. platform, technologies, clinical research support initiatives)
  • Evaluating the impact of health research
  • Strategies for working more effectively with national agencies in the planning, implementation and evaluation of programs requiring matching or partnership funds
  • Implementing a nation-wide Common Curriculum Vitae (CCV) and a Canadian Health Research Directory
  • Health research leadership management development

Contacting NAPHRO

Anyone wishing to communicate with the provincial health research funding agencies should continue to deal directly with each agency. There is, however, some opportunity to share information with NAPHRO agencies at their meetings. To arrange such an opportunity, please contact one of the co-chairs.

Members of NAPHRO are listed below, including links to their respective websites.
