 Health Research Policy
CHRC has developed a Health Research Policy for the Caribbean. The goal of the Policy is to guide the strengthening of systems so as to increase the production, access and use of essential research and thus facilitate the crafting of evidence-based health policies, programmes and practices. The key components of the Policy document include the proposed structure for health research systems in the Caribbean (at the national and regional levels) and strategies to promote their strengthening. It is expected that it will be adopted (or adapted) by CHRC member countries and thus provide the necessary framework as they continue the process of developing/strengthening functional national health research systems.  - (pdf, 1426.07 Kb)
