The Ministry of Health and Social Action  is in charge of the governance of health research with the technical support and advice of the Division of  health Research (DR) and the National Ethical Committee for Health Research (CNERS). Since 2009, the Ministry has provided the institutional basis  et legal framework for the strengthening of research capacity on operational research across the national health pyramid. For example, those health programs financed by external fund, have a specific budget to be allocated to research activities. For a protocol to be funded, it needs to fulfill all the requirements set up by CNERS. Another example is that for the year 2010, the Ministry will propose to the Ministry of Finance to activate a specific budget for operational health research.
